I've not used this particular birth control pill, but I'd suggest reading through the package information and if you have any questions, don't be afraid to contact your doctor.

I use it and there are some side effects, but I think it just depend on how your body responds to it. I know I don't get pms cramps anymore and my cycle last about 3 days the most, it helps my skin stay clearer, I'm never moody. The only thing is if you miss a pill, you can expect some cramping and light spotting. Don't be alarmed, this should be part of the side effect, and if you miss a pill you have to start all over if its alot of days. Hope this helps.

Hello- I tried this medication for a couple of years and it was great! I had no side effects. I'm on the patch right now and I'm experiencing so many bad side effects. I think I'm going to switch back to Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo soon. Hope that helps!
