    A little nauseous the first few weeks I started, but have been fine since. I've had no side effects, haven't noticed any over-emotional-ness. One complaint is that I also tried to skip my period by starting a new pack (after I had been on the pill for a year). I skipped...that week. I had enough spotting the following week to seem like a real period.

    I began taking Lutera about 2 years ago after switching from a different generic BC. Ive noticed that the week before my period i'm more emotional than when I was on other brands of birth control. Also, I tried to skip my period one time by starting the next pack early (dr said it was ok) and ended up spotting on and off for 2 months and then didnt get my period at all for a month.

    The only draw back is that I got horrible headaches. But, overall, I have been satisfied with Lutera as a birth control. But always use a condom anyway!
