As a form of birth control, it is effective. However, I couldn't stand the side effects. I started taking it a month before I got married, and it killed my libido. I would constantly be spotting 2 out of the 3 months with cramping (who wants to take ibuprofen every day, anyone?), and during the last week, my period would be HORRENDOUSLY heavy (I bled through a tampon, a pad, and my underwear a ...
