I've only been on this medication a month. I haven't started my period yet but when I first started it I used it to skip my period due to vacation and I never had any break through bleeding at all. I haven't had any mood swings, or decrease in sex drive.. if any, its gotten better. I love this birth control so far. Also my acne has been clearing up a lot. :)

I was switched to mono-linyah from Sprintec just a couple of months ago because of a change within availability at the pharmacy. I havent noticed any majjor side effects except for my skin. I have had a lot of acne breakouts since I have been taking this. Not sure if that is a common side effect of this but I didnt have acne with the Sprintec.

When my usual Sprintec was out of stock at my pharmacy, they dispensed Mono-Linyah. I've only tried it for one cycle, but I already notice some improvements. For instance, I would always spot like crazy on Sprintec but haven't yet on Mono-Linyah. I also feel less moody with no crying fits like I get on Sprintec. Another great thing is my libido has increased a lot, and while I haven ... Show Full Comment
