  • OMG I hated that damn thing! The "breakthrough bleeding" was awful for me. I did not like bleeding basically every other day the entire time I was on it.

  • I took it for about a year after I had my daughter. I liked it and never had any problems.

  • I had breakthrough bleeding and the progesterone w/o any estrogen to balance it out made me break out constantly. I stopped it after three months.

  • Hated it! I gained all my weight back that I lost after birth after being on that pill.

  • I just got a prescription for it this morning at my 6 weeks pp visit. I don' like it already because it doesn't kick in as effective birth control until 14 days after you start taking it. I do like that I can start today rather than waiting until I have a period like with the regular pill.
