Comment:
I have been taking Amethia for several months. I have not had any type of nipple or vaginal discharge like other users, but I have gained some weight in my breasts and belly. My bra size is a cup size bigger than when I started taking Amethia. I actually learned about this pill from a friend when asking about her breast size increase. I thought she had gotten implants, but she said that the ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I started taking this pill about 7-8 weeks ago. No headaches, breakouts or mood swings and no real weight gain. Switched from Seasonique to save money and because I was having weird spotting with it.

I started taking Amethia about three months ago. No mood swings, headaches, or weight gain. My only complaint would be breast tenderness that lasted only the first month. Still having regular periods, but they are shorter and lighter. Has also helped prevent acne.

Comment:
I was on Seasonique for over a year and then my pharmacy switched me to Amethia. WORST BC PILL EVER. If your pharmacy gives it to you, hand it back before even leaving. I've been on different BC pills for nearly 6 years & have never had any problems until now. I started spotting around week 8, which turned into light bleeding weeks 9-11 and now I'm on my "off week" when I get ... Show Full Comment
