Haven't gotten pregnant so far, which is a plus. I've been on it for a year now after finding out that depo provera causes bone loss. The problem I have with this bc is that I get yeast infections on the regular and my period is always out of wack. Pills are always an inconvience. I'm still looking for something better.

I have been on this pill for almost (2) months now and have been very unhappy. I switched to Junel because it is MUCH cheaper than YAZ which I used to take. The last (2) months I have felt tired, depressed, weapy, and have not been able to get a good nights rest. I do not recommend this pill. I will pay extra, it is not worth it =(
