I have been taking this pill since my 6 week apt and my daughter is now 8 months. I have had no problems...I also have not had periods. I take it the same time everyday and if for some reason I cant take it (forget it out of town..etc) I am very careful about using other forms of birth control for two days.

My hair started off out after 6 weeks on this. Huge amounts of hair, it clogged my shower drain. I took this pill everyday right on time, I set my cell phone alarm to remind me, even doing that I still had a period every 2 WEEKS!!!! I put up with this for 6 months hoping it would adjust to my body, but it never did.

Comment:
I've been on a few different types of birth control, starting with Yasmin. I found they all made me get three week long periods about every 17 days. Yuck! But the most intolerable thing was they made me a different, intolerant, b*tchy person with no interest in intimacy.
