I have been taking this pill for 5 months now because I was breastfeeding. I was never really having regular periods since taking it. I've went once with no period for 2 months, then I started my period which lasted for two weeks and finally stopped bleeding for a week only to start up again.

I had to start taking Errin because I have migraines very bad. This pill has made me gain weight, and I have the worst skin ever since taking this pill. In 30 years I've never had an acne problem. It also made my hair fall out, made me a mad woman, I'd go from happy to zapping out on my boyfriend, a crying mess it made me. This is the worst pill ever.

Comment:
I was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder nearly 3 years ago. I tried Lamictal, and a few anti depressants. The Lamictal made me "neutral." The Anti depressants made me miserable. I finally became pregnant with my daughter October, 2012, and had to be put on progesterone because she was a potential miscarriage, even in the 2nd trimester. Even though I was scared of losing her, it was ... Show Full Comment

From day 1, my breasts were sore and on the 30th day I started my cycle which turned very scary where I had abnormal abdominal pain, cold sweats, heavy bleeding and burning chest pain. I will never take another hormone regimen again.
