    First I would like to start off by saying I never write reviews and the reason I am is because this is the absolute worse thing I have ever put into my body. I wish that I had listened to the bad reviews on here before taking this because it made my life miserable. I hope that by writing this review I will stop just one person from taking this pill. I experienced constant bleeding the whole time I ... Show Full Comment

    So, I started this pill a month and a half and it's been great , I haven't spotted at all or gotten any acne like some have said, but I have been very depressed since starting and it just occurred to me today to look up side effects because I have never felt like this ever and I remembered I changed birth control around the same time, so I will be stopping but I think this may only be an i ...

    I've been on this for 2.5yrs now. The first pack was not without its complaints, but once you go through 2 or 3 your periods shorten, cramps are tolerable, acne at a minimum. My sex drive has been untouched. The first period I had with this was awful, but since have been better and better.

    I feel like most of these reviews do quartette a disservice, so I wanted to weigh in. I switched to quartette for the first cycle from lutera. I have had 0 incidents of spotting, my mood is typical, and my sex drive is just fine. I will say that I do feel like it has contributed to some acne for me in terms of increased breakouts but I have acne prone skin already. It's annoying but not so sev ... Show Full Comment

    I'm reading a lot of the comments and it seems like many women just give up in the first pack. I have been using this for a year now and I have no complaints. I did bleed for about 3-4 weeks but that's because it has to thin the lining for your uterus (one of its methods to prevent pregnancy). After that I only bled every three months for about 4 days with minima crapping. I did have acne ... Show Full Comment
