    Since i started this pill, i haven't had a period. My acne has increased a bit, and i sometimes get random bouts of dizziness and nausea. It has not made my migraines worse so that is a plus. Also, i just want to comment that no birth control method is 100% effective, you other ladies just don't seem to get that.
