Comment:
took pill to reduce cramps. i guess it was effective, but the breakthrough bleeding is ridiculous. longer than actual "period" times, plus thicker than regular menstrual blood. haven't gotten pregnant so i guess it's working, don't know if it's worth the extra blood. kind of expensive.

I took this to make my periods shorter, well instead of 5-6 days I got 18-20. I suppose it is effective in not getting pregnant, because you can't have sex. Did not help with Acne at all.

very pricy. hard to take at same time every day. lots of break-through bleeding with pain + period at end of month. was hoping for relief of irritability and other pms problems but no such luck.

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.
