  • Effectiveness
    Major (for ovarian cyst)
  • Side effects
    Severe
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: extended cycle 30 mcg-0.15 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: My insurance refused to pay for a 10-week cycle using three 28-day pill packs (9 weeks of hormones, 1 week off), so I was switched to this 12-week cycle pack (11 weeks of hormones, 1 week off). Using these pills contributed to deep-vein thrombosis and a resulting pulmonary embolism.
Cost: < $25 monthly
