    Since starting this BC 4 weeks ago, I have experienced horrible breakthrough bleeding DAILY for 3 weeks now, cramps that leave me doubled over in pain, incredible bouts of intense anger and sadness, increase in acne and significant swelling in my legs and feet. My doctor wants me to give it three months and I'm just not sure it's worth it!!
