This month my period never came (I was thinking this was n ... Show Full Comment

(18 yrs old) I've been on this birth control for 4 months now, I think that it's a great pill, I remember to take it at the same time everyday.

I have been using this for about 3 months and have been getting my period every other week. My breasts have been tender for at least a month. At times I feel like this is making me go crazy with my mood swings. I used to be on a progesterone only pill for a couple of years and never had any side affects. I will not be staying on this.
