It has worked in preventing pregnancy and easy to use. You just take 1 pill a day, but the side effects have been HORRIBLE. My stomach is always bloated, worst stomach pains, constipation, tender breasts all the time. I stressed for 3 months thinking I was pregnant. I hate this birth control. It also made my acne terrible.

Starting third week of pills. Extremely emotional. The second week I had RAVENOUS cravings which subsided but the water retention I presently have is very noticeable. My breasts are painful and swollen all the time…

Speaking as a 30 year old woman who has been on every single birth control around trying to find one that WOULDN'T cause break through bleeding (cuz this was a major problem for me being on birth control pills), I can confidently say I have finally found the answer.
