    This pill has worked well in the past three years. No pregnancy scares and my periods are now so regular that if I cramp, I know it's coming. The first month is a doozy but waiting it out is worth it. My first month I had cold sores, crying, breakthrough bleeding, and hot and lumpy breasts but it subsided.
