Comment:
On the pill for a little over two months now, and it has been working great (no babies... and I went up a cup size!)

Comment:
Comparing this to other BC it has been great for me. I have been on Levlen (tremendous weight gain), Yaz (terrible cramps and fear of the scary new side effects), and Ortho Evra (the patch, which made me INSANE and moody and irritable and emotional and just irrational).
