    I originally started using this medication for birth control (protected sex). I started this with a clear face and would occasionally get a few pimples here and there. I figured I would give it three months to see if my face got better, but at my fifth month of using it I stopped it. I couldn't handle the amount of acne I was getting every single day. This particular pill made me not want to ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on this pill for two years now. I am 19 years old it has worked great for me. When I first took it, I was nauseous for the first 3 months on and off. Other then that, no weight gain, mood swings, blood clots, nothing. My period went from 7 heavy days to 2 heavy days and 3 light days. It is easy to take and very affordable. I would recommend it to anyone.

    I am new to the Pill. This is my second month. Pros are it's easy to take, affordable, discrete and effective. I have an alarm set on my phone to take it every afternoon. My main con are mood swings. The last two months, during the first week of the pack, I've had (have) PMS symptoms without the cramping or fatigue. I feel upset, depressed, insecure, etc. I'm considering an alternativ ... Show Full Comment
