 1  Heavy Bleeding I started taking the pill April 12, 2020. I didn't get a period in May so I was super excited. I was scheduled to get period July 5. June 1 I started spotting every single day. Towards the end of June, the spotting turned into bleeding, by July 4th it was super heavy bleeding, headaches, and depression. I stopped taking the pill July 12. I continued bleeding until I had to take a medication to lighten it up. Today is July 18, and tonight for the first time since June 1, I am not bleeding. Do not get on seasonique, it is not worth it! I had to wear depends because I was bleeding so heavy which caused depression, headaches and neck aches. F 40 47 days

 2  Dysmenorrhea Heavy spotting and long periods I started taking this in August 2019, the first cycle went well, but during the second one I had 2 months of heavy spotting. The third one went well and so I thought it had stabilized, but now I have to stop because I have been having a month-long period and it's not stopping. F 23 241 days

Worse than morning sickness and I had hypermesis gardivum. Iím going to stick it out until Iím done with the first pack to see if it gets better because I canít take many kinds of birth control.

 5  Bad periods When I first started taking it my period lasted for three weeks, I gained 5 pounds, and my breasts were very tender. After those first three weeks I feel great. 2 pounds have come off, my mood swings have vastly improved, and I no longer have headaches every day. I also have more energy! This has really helped "even me out." F 36 2 months

 1  To help with PMDD Continuously bleeding. Haven't stopped since my first day of the pill. Ridiculous amount of water weight gain. Super high anxiety. Completely not worth the water weight, the anxiety and the endless bleeding. Last day of putting this drug in my body. F 27 3 weeks

 2  contraception Significant weight gain, headaches Only plus sides for me was the 4 periods a year and acne under control. What is no longer worth it to me is the significant amount of weight gain (20 lbs). I am depressed and anxious on this pill especially from the weight gain. I get headaches and have had migraines using this pill. I also have no sex drive. It's not worth feeling this way anymore. Now I have to regain energy and work hard to get these 20 lbs off! So frustrating. F 27 1 years

 1  Acne control, prevention of pregnan Acne, break through bleeding, lower back pain, breast tenderness, depressed mood, cramping, chest pain Obviously, every woman's body is different. However, I switched to amethia (a generic seasonique) from years of reclipisen. I had no side effects with the reclipisen other than a mild breakout during my period week. I asked my gyno if there was a way to prevent these breakouts and she put me on this. My acne was mild but annoying. The first three months of amethia nothing seemed to change, my acne stayed about the same. But then after about 5 months I had awful breakthrough bleeding and my skin was the worst it's been since my early teens. I'm also super depressed. I would think twice before taking this pill, especially if you want to treat your acne. As I said everyone is different but after I finish my 6th month I'm switching! F 21 6 months

SEASONIQUE  (ETHINYL ESTRADIOL; LEVONORGESTREL):  This combination hormone medication is used to prevent pregnancy. It contains 2 hormones: a progestin (levonorgestrel) and an estrogen (ethinyl estradiol). It works mainly by preventing the release of an egg (ovulation) during your menstrual cycle. It also makes vaginal fluid thicker to help prevent sperm from reaching an egg (fertilization) and changes the lining of the uterus (womb) to prevent attachment of a fertilized egg. If a fertilized egg does not attach to the uterus, it passes out of the body. Besides preventing pregnancy, birth control pills may make your periods more regular, decrease blood loss and painful periods, decrease your risk of ovarian cysts, and also treat acne. Using this medication does not protect you or your partner against sexually transmitted diseases (such as HIV, gonorrhea, chlamydia).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
