I am 18 now, and I had been taking Lutera birth control for about a year but I started skipping my period purposely every month. All you do is: instead of taking the placebo pills (the red pills), skip those and start a new pack the next day. I would not recommend that ANYONE do this because after that first year of taking Lutera, I started having breakthrough bleeding that got worse and worse and ... Show Full Comment

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.

I had enough spotting the following week to seem like a real period.

Comment:
I began taking Lutera about 2 years ago after switching from a different generic BC. Ive noticed that the week before my period i'm more emotional than when I was on other brands of birth control. Also, I tried to skip my period one time by starting the next pack early (dr said it was ok) and ended up spotting on and off for 2 months and then didnt get my period at all for a month.
