    I started this during the summer of 2006. In December of 06, I got a little pink plus sign after I peed on the stick! lol Clearly didn't work for me, but I was happy while it was, as I didn't experience any negative side effects. I still feel blessed to have a beautiful girl, so I guess it worked out in my case.

I switched to regular ortho tri cyclen and had even lower (no) sex drive. My doctor thinks I need a low estrogen monophasic pill, so I'm trying Yaz tomorrow. Will update with a review on the Yaz board. Also it took about 6 months on ortho to make my ... Show Full Comment

I am really concerned about ... Show Full Comment
