I've taken this Microgestin 1/20 for a year, and so far, so good! In the beginning, it took a couple of months for my period to stick to a schedule, but now, it's like clockwork. Shows up on day 28 and lasts for 5 days with a very light flow. Every girl is different, but this one works great for me! And remember, for every negative review you read, there are handful more of ladies that us ... Show Full Comment
