    I've been using this pill for over two years. As much as getting a period sucks, I like that I know exactly when it will start. It is also lighter than it was before taking the pill and lasts about 3 days. I remember I was unsure about this brand because of all the comments online about weight gain and mood swings but the only side effect I get is some nausea the morning after starting a new p ...
