I have been taking Lutera for about 6 years except for about 2 year time frame when I choose to stop to become pregnant. Overall I don't really have anything bad to say. The only problem I tend to have is if I don't eat when taking the pill at night I feel queasy the next morning. Otherwise I have had shorter periods, less cramping and not as moody as my pervious bc.

A little nauseous the first few weeks I started, but have been fine since. I've had no side effects, haven't noticed any over-emotional-ness. One complaint is that I also tried to skip my period by starting a new pack (after I had been on the pill for a year). I skipped...that week. I had enough spotting the following week to seem like a real period.
