    I have been taking this medication for 1 year now. My doctor started me on it after I gave birth to my 1st child because it was a birth control pill that I could take while breastfeeding. I breastfed exclusively for 6 months and had absolutely no problems with this pill. I did, however have irregular periods.

    Horrible mood swings, irritability and overly emotional. I'm a fairly even keeled person and this pill has made me feel so emotionally labile that my relationships have suffered. Also have had terrible cramps, heavy periods, unrelenting breast tenderness and lowered libido. This is my second time around with this pill and both rounds were awful.
