    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 never had any side effects, and never any spotting. The 4 periods a year that I did have were extremely light. I did not see added benefits like less acne, but that wasn't my purpose for taking it. I was very ple ... Show Full Comment

    I've been on it for a little over a year. I don't know about anyone else, but I've experienced weight gain, acne (when I've NEVER had acne before), fatigue, depression and loss of sex drive. I've talked to my doctor AND my gyno and both do not attribute my symptoms with seasonique. I love not having my period--one of the reasons why I chose this one is because then I could have ...

    I'm no longer on Seasonale, but I took it for about 3 years so I thought I'd share my experience. Overall I liked Seasonale, in the end I had to stop taking it because I have migraines and was told I can't take any bc that contains estrogen anymore, bummer. But, here's my pros and cons list for it: Pros: - my skin was absolutely flawless the entire time I was taking it - i did ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on this pill for 3 months and have had nothing but problems. I experienced break through bleeding that started about two weeks into the first month and lasted until I started the placebo pills. After I was done the first pack I had a very heavy period with severe cramping. I was constantly nauseous and very emotional throughout the 3 months. To top it all off I also got diagnosed with ...
