Experience

I have been on this pill for the past 4 years. I had extremely heavy bleeding and periods that lasted for three weeks prior to this pill so I was put on birth control. For three years I had no issues. No spotting and my periods completely stopped. This year I have began to spot frequently and fill panty liners. It varies from heavier to light and intermittent. This time it has been over two weeks. I had such high praise for cerelle until this. I can only assume my body has got used to it. Not sure what pop to go on now. Just want to not bleed again. Acne has never been good but that was the only side affect from day one.
