    It worked okay for the first year. Then i started feeling extremely fatigued all the time, which made school work very difficult. i wanted to sleep liek 9-hour nights with a three hour nap in the afternoon. This pill made me very nauseated and there were plenty nights where i was up vomitting for several hours.

    I took this pill for one month; when the period week came along I had severe cramping, so bad I couldn't walk. The following month was filled with all kinds pains in my abdomen and lower rib cage. Turned out I developed an ovarian cyst that burst and was leaking fluid into my body cavity that was causing the pains. I'm on Sprintec now with no problems.

    I love this pill. I didn't feel any side effects and my period was extremely regular. The only problem is that it's kind of expensive and my insurance doesn't cover it =-/ ...but if you need birth control pills i recommend this one!

    I have only been taking this birth control for 2 weeks, but I am so bloated!! I do not have an increased appetite, but I feel like I'm retaining a lot of water and it is making my stomach look so much bigger. I really do not like this side effect and I was wondering if anyone who has been on this pill could comment on this problem. Does this go away after a few weeks, or will it continue to ...
