Comment:
I only took Lutera for one month back in April 2008 and here it is October 2008 and I still have not had my cycle. It made me emotional and tired, I as well had tender breasts (started within the 2nd week of taking the pill), so I decided to take myself off. With those symptoms, I felt like I was pregnant.

I've had such horrible headaches that they make me ill. Also been getting very tired around nine or ten at night, when usually I fall asleep around one or two in the morning. I've been crying so easily, and I feel somewhat paranoid that I'll never feel the same as I did before I started taking this BC.

Comment:
I've been on Lutera for over a year now. The positive side effects I've noticed is that my skin is clearer, and my periods are more regular. On the other hand, I've experienced a decrease in sex drive, trouble sleeping and anxiety and moodiness. I'm not sure if these are solely the fault of the pills, but I am going to look into alternatives with fewer side effects.
