I have taken this pill for 2 months now and have not stopped bleeding and pms is constant. Where's my Nuva-ring?!? Can't use that anymore because I smoke...guess I'm on my own.

Went on this pill because the combination pills were making me moody and killing my libido. Haven't had any of that on this pill or any other weird side effects. Started spotting four months into taking this tho, which is annoying.

Comment:
Since I am breastfeeding, the doctor prescribed me these pills. The physical problems I've experienced while taking these feel as if I was in the first trimester of my pregnancy all over again: bloating, nausea, dizziness... Don't know how effective this is because I am staring my second pack, but I know once when I'm done breastfeeding, I probably won't go back to this medication ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Used this while breastfeeding, since it contained no estrogin. Worked fine, except when I didn't take it at the same time of the day (which resulted in spotting). Since this is not 100% effective, I was a little paranoid about getting pregnant.

Comment:
This pill is easy to take but some of the physical side effects I am experiencing are so upsetting that I have asked my doctor to take me off this form of birth control. I want to go back on my NuvaRing.
