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
