9 years on this pill, was satisfied for 6 of them. The last 3 I had been diagnosed with diabetes, & tested for cancer, anemia, and heart problems. I couldn't take a shower without wanting to faint, severe heart pain, and ready for bed by 4pm everyday. By process of elimination, we found out it was Seasonale causing my symptoms.

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
