 1  Birth Control and heavy periods Moodiness and sores developing on Labia I had BOTH my daughters on this pill and they both developed canker like sores on the Labia area at 8-9 weeks after starting this pill.....just too much of a coincidence for it to not be this pill......took them off immediately....sores were painful and not worth the aggravation.

 3  Birth Control Burst blood vessel, which caused me to see flashing lights in my vision. Prior to Quasense, I'd been taking Seasonale, and other birth control pills for the past 12 years, so it's hard to say that Quasense is the only culprit, but I started seeing spots/flashing lights out of the corner of my eye. I went to the eye doctor and he found a burst blood vessel, which he believed to be caused from too much estrogen in the Quasense. He said if I didn't stop taking the pills, I would likely have a stroke. He suggested that my OB/GYN might be able to recommend a different brand of pill with less estrogen, or another form of birth control. F 30 1 years

QUASENSE  (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)
