This pill is extremely reliable, I never have to worry about accidentally getting pregnant. Especially with the use of condoms! This also made my periods a thousand times lighter, Seasonale has become a staple in my life for sure. It's easy to use and the only time I ever saw slight reaction is when I first started taking it and I became a little bit more irritable and I had some spotting issu ... Show Full Comment

I love seasonale, had troubles on every other birthcontrol I tried. I only get acne around the time I go off my pills and My sex drive is higher I find. Really no complaints here.

Alright, it did its job because I didn't get pregnant, but WOW. I know everyone reacts differently to birth control, but I experienced what a lot of these women have-- NO sex drive.

I am not on this anymore, but only because I stopped needing any bc. I was on it for over 6 years; started with name brand then moved to the generic with no noticable difference.

I was very ple ... Show Full Comment
