I like it now, but first month took some getting used too. I was nauseas in the mornings and my boobs were very sore. After the first month it got better!

I have been on this pill for 3 months. I have gained a bit of weight but then again that can also be due to me not working out as much as I used to. My breast feel fuller and more sensitive.
