I gained 10 pounds and saw an amazing increase in facial hair after starting this medication. I also noticed that I am always spotting. This pill is more affordable, but definitely not for me.

When I am on the placebo pills I do not get my period. When I am on the *real* pills I do get my period. I spot most of the month.I am going to get off this. I ahve been on it for 6 months just to be sure to give it a good chance, but this spotting is a real problem. I have been wearing a pad for the past 6 months of my life.

Comment:
This is my first time ever using birth control so I wasn't sure what to expect. A friend of mine had recommended this pill to me so I asked my doctor to prescribe it.
