I took it. never had any problems on it. In fact, it's the only one that didn't make me sick or hurt.

I had mood swings on it. I have bad mood swings normally anyways, they just got worse on it. I am on sprintec for my birth control now and citalopram for my mood swings.

I got pregnant on it. Never missed a pill. Never was late. But apparently the spotting in between all my periods was a sign that it wasn't enough for my body.

It didn't do anything to me. I did get pregnant taking it, and that's taking it correctly.

I was on it for five years. Only difference I noticed was that I was more emotional. Like, crying more easily at sappy things. Other than that I loved it. I got on it in the first place for my skin bc it's marketed for that as well (so my dr told me). Never really had any problems except when I switched to the generic I lost my appetite for about a week.

I used to miss multiple pills at a time and never got pregnant on it. It could just be me though, since it looks like there's multiple women here that did.
