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.

I have been taking Lutera for about 6 years except for about 2 year time frame when I choose to stop to become pregnant. Overall I don't really have anything bad to say. The only problem I tend to have is if I don't eat when taking the pill at night I feel queasy the next morning. Otherwise I have had shorter periods, less cramping and not as moody as my pervious bc.

I am 18 now, and I had been taking Lutera birth control for about a year but I started skipping my period purposely every month. All you do is: instead of taking the placebo pills (the red pills), skip those and start a new pack the next day.
