I have had bleeding every once in a while during sex, I heard it's not because of Lutera but just because birth control p ... Show Full Comment

i started taking lutera a year ago and it works great. my periods are not as long as thry were before maybe three days and it has helped with my migraines. I rarely get them anymore. it also helps with my breakouts, im seeing them less frequent. This is probably one of the best birth controls ive been on.

I've been taking it for about 2 years. I previously had been getting Depo shots for many years, and switched after the calcium-deficiacy warnings hit the media.
