I've been on this pill for about a year now... at the beginning I was really scared by the effects. My period was on and off for awhile and had lots of spotting.

I have been on Lutera for jus tender 4 months. It is so bad my boyfriend calls it Luterror. I have lower abdominal cramping, mood swings, diarrhea, breast and nipple tenderness and swelling. My sex drive just died last month. But the cherry on top is that I also started to lose my hair! So Saturday will be my last day. Pros: not pregnant, no weight gain, skin is very clear.

Lutera works really well for me. Prior to taking it I was on the depo provera injection. This pill cleared my acne and my moods improved. My periods have become super light and only last 3 days at the most. Overall I am very satisfied with it.
