I took it for about two cycles and while I didnt get pregnant on it, when I went on the placbo pills, I SWORE to god I was! It has one of the worst placebo pills in my opnion because it gave me every symptom of pregnancy there could be! I liked Lybrell personally the best.

I was on it.  As long as you take it as directed it is 99% effective.  I did get pregnant, but that was my own fault, I had a lot of trouble remembering.  I have mirena.  I experienced some side effects in the beginning, but I have had it for 9 months now and love it.

I had the mirena for 13months and then took it out... I had no side effects noticable till the 13month when my uterus swelled up from not getting my pd and the hormones satred to mess up my body... I wish that would have worked for me... When they toook it out that thing CAN NOT be sanitary... It wasdirty looking!!

I was on it for 3 years.....got pregnant the third year, but I did not take it at the same time every day, we never used a condom or any form of protection either.

I loved it though! Virtually no side effects!
