Experience

I was put on Loestrin 20 at 15 to help my periods (on for 30 days, off for 5, and repeat) and it wasn’t quite the one so I went on 30 and my periods have been perfect ever since. No spotting, only 1 heavy period a year maybe, and only 4/5 day periods. I don’t get side effects from this other than normal period side effects when I take my break (cramps, nausea and moody). Wouldn’t change!
