I love this birth control. I see a lot of bad reviews but I have been using it for over 4 years now and compared to others I have tried it is the best. For me, on this dose I have never gotten a period. Every few months I have very light spotting during the time the time one should have a period with this drug. My doc says it is fine, I do not ovulate on this med. I have never gained any weight on...

My old birth control was discontinued. I was taking it successfully for 4 years. I was prescribed this birth control instead. I was pregnant in less than one month. Beware!

This medication helps with heavy flooding perimenopause periods and night sweats. I'm 45 and will stay on this until 51 or menopause.

I have taken this birth control for two years and I love it. It cleared up my skin, has prevented me from getting pregnant, and I have only had one period since starting it. I asked my doctor for a birth control that helped with cystic acne and this is what she recommended. I haven't experienced any negative side effects.

I've been on microgestin for a year and a half and I have no qualms with this medication. Everyone is different, I know. I haven't had a period yet and I do lay off the last week. I am a little emotional just before and after I'm supposed to have my period. Though I was an emotional person before this. All in all I would suggest this as an option for anyone though I know each body is different.

I have been on this birth control for one month and I can honestly say that I haven't experienced weight gain, headaches, or acne breakouts. This is my 1st time ever using birth control and my doctor recommended this brand. Hopefully I will continue to have good experiences with this medication.
