    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 ...

    I have been on seasonale for a little more than 3 years and never looked back. I didn't get any spotting in the first few packs. The only time I got spotting was when I missed 3 days in a row and that was only for two days, no big deal. When I stop the active pills it takes about 4 days for my period to start. I take my last pill on Thursday night and my period starts on Monday and only lasts ... Show Full Comment

    I've been on Seasonale for over five years now. Prior to taking the pill and when I was on Ortho, I had long, heavy, and painful periods. On Seasonale, they only last four days, they're really light, and I only get mild cramps for a day or two. I used to get depressed before I'd have my period, and since I've been on Seasonale, I've never PMSed. I have never had any spotting p ... Show Full Comment

    I went from a regular 1-month pill to this, and everything was great for 3 years. In year 4 I started having breakthrough bleeding and almost constant spotting. Now after a year of those issues, I had a period during the normal white-pill time and it was fine. Then suddenly after starting the new pack I had biblical-flood-like bleeding. Soaking one super ultra tampon per hour for over 48 hours. NE ... Show Full Comment
