Comment:
This pill worked great for preventing pregnancy and clearing my acne. However I haven't had a period in 7 months and my pelcic area aces sporadically like cramps. Great at preventing pregnancy, but I'm worried im doing permanent damage. After reading other reviews and finding out I'm not the only one, I will definitely be switching brands.
