I have been on Velivet for around 4 years. I have had a problem with veins in my legs that I had never related back to the pill until yesterday. I have read lots of studies and realize that this had to be the cause. I quit taking them. I believe this can be a problem for lots of birth control pills. I don't think they are as safe as they say they are.

I have been on this pill for almost 4 years now. For the most part I have never had a problem. My only fear is once I am off the pill being able to have a baby. Also the only side affect I have had was headachs during the last week of each pack which could also be from my period.

I think this is the generic kind from Othro-tricyclen and it works for me. The only thing about this is that, I've been off BC for two years and I'm just getting back on them. I have been breakthrough bleeding for maybe a week now. I called my doctor and she said that's what it was.
