    The only good thing about this pill is that I'm not pregnant. I take it at 11:30am everyday. I have to set my cell phone alarm to remind me. Even though you have a 3 hour window, if I miss it by a couple hours...I get my period for 8 days. Before I was on this, I got my period for 3 or 4 days.

Within a week of taking it, I have noticed my skin is very oily, I have light cramps throughout the day, and my hair is abnormally greasy.

    The only thing I like about this pill is that I am not pregnant. It has made my hair fall out and I bleed for at least 6days every other week. This is the worse thing ever I took my last pill 4days ago and did not refill. My husband and I will be resorting to condoms or something besides all the bleeding I'm doing there isnt much sex anyways.
