If I could give it 0 stars I would. AVOID!! 6 months in this pill gave me extremely painful chronic cystic acne all over my chin and cheeks. It destroyed my self esteem and I almost had to go on accutane to stop it. It also made me very depressed. If you struggle with mild acne already, sweating, mood swings, irregular periods and excessive body hair growth do NOT let your doctor put you this pill! It is very androgenic and worsens these symptoms, but it’s often used as a “starter pill” when you first decide to take contraception. I switched to Yasmin after this and it changed my life and completely reversed all these side effects. This pill is a nightmare!

As someone who experienced heavy and long periods, this pill helped to shorten the amount of days (from 7+ down to 5) and helped ensure regular periods to plan around. As I took this pill for 12+ years, I have recently decided to take a break

I was prescribed this pill as I struggled to gain weight therefore, I didn’t have a regular period. I never had any awful experiences with this pill other than after 3 years I started to experience reoccurring thrush. Once it was treated it usually went away until recently, I have been experiencing thrush almost every month always during the week before my break. It has become unbearable leading me to change to a different lower dose birth control instead.
