I was very displeased with this, BC. I have experienced weight gain, abdominal pain, random periods some light and some heavy. I didn't get pregnant over the past 8 1/2 months but feel like poop.

Comment:
This medication was prescribed to me when I was having side effects with Seasonale. I can not tell you how horrible this medicine is. I felt like a ghost in my own mind. I "spotted" (really had a full blown period" for 5 weeks straight. My doctor insisted that this pill is known for light bleeding even though it is not time for your cycle. I went ahead and continued taking it only f ... Show Full Comment
