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.

Just started taking this pill and so far no complains. I bled for a couple of days. I take it at 8pm every night. I feel like my boobs are fuller. I dont have any significant symptons and my sexual drive is still there. It works different on everyone but so far, no complaints.

Comment:
This birth control made me completely crazy. I had major mood swings and would snap at people all the time. I did not feel like myself at all! I gained 10 pounds and had stomach cramping. I also got this weird pain in my rib cage for 7+ months that went away as soon as I switched to a new pill last month. No sex drive at all. Depressed. The only good thing about this pill is I didn't get pregn ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
After a few months of using Lutera, my periods were very light and only lasted about 2 days with the rest of the week only slight spotting. Plus, I didn't gain any weight (unlike Ortho Tri Cyclen which I took a couple years back). I loved that part of it. The downside? It completely wrecked my sense of sanity. I went from being a very rational person to a complete emotional wreck for the major ... Show Full Comment
