    I have been on this pill for about one month now. I had break-thru bleeding after taking it 30 minutes before I normally take it one day. The break-thru bleeding lasted for a week. I was a little bit more emotional than normal. But other than that, it is okay. My period was really light so that is definitely a plus.

    This pill works as in I haven't gotten pregnant off of it. I will be completely honest though, this is the WORST pill I have ever taken. I feel like I'm depressed 99% of the time.

    I switched pharmacies and they switched me to Junel from Microgestin. I am still on the first week but from all the reviews I read online, I thought it was going to really mess me up. So far no complaints.

    I have been on this pill for two months and was a bit apprehensive after reading some pretty bad reviews. However, it's been great (I hope I don't jinx myself, hehe)! The first month I experienced tender breasts and my period was a day early... but also ended a day early which was fine with me since it usually overlaps the weekend. Anyway, the second month my period was on the correct day ... Show Full Comment
