(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.

My normal bc was replaced by this in January due to "high blood pressure" and I've had the absolute worst experience with it.

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.

My doctor prescribe this birth control because i was breastfeeding.During 8 month of taking it i had my period every 1,5-2 weeks. When i missed taking one tablet in time (i took 6 hours later) i got pregnant. My baby was born w/birth defects. My previous three kids was born with NO any problems. I wouldn't recommend this birth control tablets to anyone!!!!! Really terrible experience!!!!!
