Comment:
I had tons of breakthrough bleeding. The fact that a delay (due to over-sleeping or morning food-poisoning) of a few hours could trigger a 10 day period made me pretty uneasy about depending on it for birth control. I always used a condom so I can't say that this was truly effective, unless by "effective" they mean that sex is off limits when one is always bleeding.

Comment:
It is expensive as there is no generic version yet and there is a lot of breakthrough bleeding but that stops after using it for a while and being really careful to take it the same time every day. sometimes being off a little bit of time will cause problems. if you are consistent with it, though, it works great and keeps a very short period.

I've never had such bad break-through bleeding as I have with this drug. I took it both for birth control and lighter periods...not to have a constant period for 2 months!

This is the only BC pill I've ever taken that hasn't made me feel nauseated. I love it! There were no side effects at all for me.
