    I have been taking Lutera for going on 4 months now, and so far it has been very easy to use, and I have only had mild symptoms from it.

    I was on Lutera for a couple of years without any issue, then went off it for about three months to give my body a rest.

I just threw these pills out a few days ago and can already feel the difference.

    I was on Lutera for 3 months. It was my first experience taking BC. I now switched to Trinessa (who's reviews scare me). I switched because this pill gave me acne, I had completely clear skin before, gave me mood swings and overly light periods.
