I've taken it for atleast a year or two, and so far so good. My breasts are sore a lot of the time, I'd say about a few weeks out of the month, which sucks when I'm running or when my husband wants to be a little rough with me, but I don't mind it that much. I have had bleeding every once in a while during sex, I heard it's not because of Lutera but just because birth control p ... Show Full Comment

i started taking lutera a year ago and it works great. my periods are not as long as thry were before maybe three days and it has helped with my migraines.

I've been taking it for about 2 years. I previously had been getting Depo shots for many years, and switched after the calcium-deficiacy warnings hit the media.

Every since I started Lutera, i have experienced on going breast tenderness, shortness of breathe, numbness of hands, pains in my arms, and severe cramping.

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.
