This birth control was given to me in a pharmacy as the generic version of my original prescription.

Comment:
This was my first type of birth control I have used. It is very effective, and very easy to use. I have not had a period in several months. I am not sure if this is my body type or it is typical of the type but I have not read anyone else with the same issue.
