Aviane didn't give me any problems either.

    It has caused me some abnormal bleeding in between periods, but the blood has been bright red. It has also caused me some depression, and detatched feelings. Other than that it has been great, i havnt gained weight, my once extremely painful and heavy periods have become light, pain free and just better overall.
