I've been on it for about 2 1/2 years now because my periods were like that heavy and about every other week for a week to two weeks. I still had them for a while but it was light and less frequent, and about 2 months ago i stopped have it completely. My doctor just said that i needed to drink more milk then usual too because it wears down your bones over time. I haven't tried to get off of it yet so idk about those side affects. It has made it so my anemia wasn't as bad though. So for me so far it has been good.
