  • Perceived effectiveness for Birth control: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 30 mcg-0.15 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: No side effects like I've had with other birth control pills, except for the lovely side effect of MUCH lighter periods (almost non-existent) and cramps are almost eliminated. This has made my life SO much better. Fibro and cramps are an evil combination.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Ovarian cyst: Major
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
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: Not specified monthly
