    This pill worked great for preventing pregnancy and clearing my acne. However I haven't had a period in 7 months and my pelcic area aces sporadically like cramps. Great at preventing pregnancy, but I'm worried im doing permanent damage. After reading other reviews and finding out I'm not the only one, I will definitely be switching brands.

    I have been on this drug for two months. I switched because I wanted a lower hormone birth control. I've been on birth control for 11 years and have a regular on time period. However, since switching to this drug, I haven't had a period (And I took a test-not pregnant). Anyone else having this problem?

I also noticed breaking out on my shoulders and my chin area. I think it just takes a while for your body to adjust to the hormones. I'm on my second pack and I feel back to my normal self. I t ...
