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.

But symptoms returns once I begin the bc pills again. I've only been on this brand of bc pills for a month. If it continues after this cycle of pills, I'm contacting my physician. My health is too import ... Show Full Comment
