    I decided to go on this just so I would have less periods to deal with. The first pill pack was alright, I spotted for a month before my period, but I plan to be on this pill for at least 5 years, so a month of spotting was nothing.

    I love the idea of this pill, but if im late even by 10 minutes on a couple within one month, i get a very long period. Once i had one for 4 months (very light but still). I have a prolonged one now going on 4 weeks. It is a hassle to stop the pill and introduce it again to your system so i can get rid of a horribly long breakthrough period.
