I really just wanted to say that I just got this pill prescribed to me because my GYN does not want me on pills with Estrogen due to my monthly cycle migraines. After reading all 23 reviews I am terrified to take it, excessive bleeding, moodiness, weight gain and hair falling out? Who needs that?! They wonder why women choose to risk it and not take the pill.. With pills like this I can almost ... Show Full Comment

I absolutely hate this medicine. During the first month I had light breakthrough bleeding and shorter periods, but the frequency, duration, and amount of bleeding has steadily increased.

I've been taking this for at least 4 months. I still have yet to have any period. My son ia 7 months old. I like it, no side effects the only thing is it is hard to take it the same time each day. I miss using the ring, which I can't use while breastfeeding. But all in all it is a good drug.
