I had been using Nuva Ring before this pill but had to go off it due to migranes. I had mild acne and regular periods before starting this pill and haven't noticed any change...if anything my periods have been slightly shorter/lighter. I did have 3 times when I had an "extra" period in a month but over a two year span of taking this pill I don't think its a big deal. The only ... Show Full Comment

I take this pill because I get migraines. I've had no problems with it! No weight gain, unusual bleeding or anything. I hardly notice it, except when I take the pill! I wish it was more effective, but that's the nature of the game. You just have to be a machine about taking it at the same time each day.

Needless to say its ruined my relationship with my boyfriend and I' ... Show Full Comment
