    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 rarely get them anymore. it also helps with my breakouts, im seeing them less frequent. This is probably one of the best birth controls ive been on.

    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. I also skip the last week of pills, and hardly ever get any breakthrough bleeding. In fact, sometimes I don't even bleed when I should be getting my period, but maybe that's to be expected, since I had not had a period at al ... Show Full Comment

    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 wish the manufacture never changed products. My previous BC was a gem, now I feel like something is really wrong. Diffenately will be changing BC ASAP.
