I've only been taking this birth control for less than two weeks and I've gained over 12 pounds...ITS CRAZY!!!! Do not do it. Find another method that suits you best. I was on Orthocyclen and I never had issues with it. I think I'll be switching back asap.

I was on this for four years. For the first three, I had lighter but very irregular periods, rangeing from 25 to 50 days. The last year, I have been having very frequent, painful, and heavy periods, sometimes bleeding 3 of 4 weeks. I have just switched and hope the new pill is better. I also hope it doesn't decrease my sex drive like micronor did.
