I advised anyone that gets this drug, to find out all the side effects. This pill has had me on a period for 3 months consecutive.

The first 3 months on this drug was great, then I got the worse cramps of my life and a really heavy period. Two weeks later I got my period again and it won't go away. My dr won't put me on anything else as I have migraines and said it may take up to a year for my body to get used to the pill. Its horrible!

I was put on this birth control because I was having horrible migraines on the combination (estrogen and progesterone) pill. I was happy with how I was feeling on this pill for a few months. My periods were always on time & consistent. I always took my pill on time, never fluctuating more than 5 minutes, and have never missed a pill. This month my period never came (I was thinking this was n ... Show Full Comment

Comment:

The only complaint that I have is that is does make my period very irregular, my cycles started at 25 days and ... Show Full Comment
