    I have been on this pill for 2 years (I started after the birth of my daughter because I was breastfeeding). Honestly, I had no side effects with this pill. The reason I've stayed on it this long is because the regular pills (with estrogen) often made me nauseous and also I knew I'd get really depressed for the first month and just couldn't bear the thought of being like that with a n ...
