    I love my Jolivette! I've been on it for almost 2 years and have had only positive experiences and very minimal periods! I have endometriosis and this BC can be used to treat endo symptoms - I only have 2 bad days of cramping/pain and they're predictable (3 days before my period and 2nd day of my period) I used to experience horrendous, debilitating rectal pain from the endo - not anymore! ...

    So I choose this birth control for a few reasons. I have a heavy flow for about 4 days and major back pain as well. I also have mental health in my family so I'm not one to mess with the chemistry in my body to much. Picking a birth control with just progesterone was my best option. I've read the other reviews and I must say that I haven't had the same effects. My body type is 5.6ft ... Show Full Comment

    The first few months of being on this pill was hell. I had two week long periods, breakouts like crazy, and gained a little wait. I talked to my doctor but this is the only pill I can be on due to migraines. YOU MUST BE PATIENT. The pill works, just irregular periods.

    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. Out of all the 20 years of me using birth control, this has been the worse pill by far for me. I immediately called my doctors office and asked to be switched back to what i was on before. She advised that every woman is different, but this is by far the worse for me. ... Show Full Comment

    I've only been on Jolivette for a month & a half after Planned Parenthood decided I couldn't pick up at the clinic anymore & to go to my pharmacy and obtain it free there. I was on Micronor. I liked it! Then they gave me this crap in place of my Micronor. So far in the last month & a half, Rather just shy of my 30th bday, Ive noticed irregular periods, two periods in july, spot ...
