Seasonale caused me to have a stroke. It was a horrible scary experience that I never want to repeat.

Hated this pill. I bled constantly and had cramps and depression. Honestly thought I was pregnant. I'm switching for sure.

This pill was a nightmare. I have endometriosis so I went on it to avoid having my period. It made me gain SO MUCH WEIGHT. I thought that I was pregnant because I developed a belly. I weigh 135 and I went up to 145. I could not get it off, even after I stopped it. I ended up going off of it and had severe cramping for a year and my regular cycle has never come back since.

I love this pill! It is awesome...I spotted close to the end of the first 3mos pack and a little throughout the 2nd pack but nothing I was concerned over! I have been taking it for almost a year and as long as I can continue to afford it I will take it. I am low income so I have a percentage of Rx covered but unfortunately this one isn't covered at all :( I recommend this pill fully, everyone reacts differently though, most people who do review are unhappy but I love this pill. No weight gain, hair loss, acne or any other side effect, light spotting in the beginning but it hasn't happened in the past 8 mos or so!

This is my 10th week on seasonale and I am really considering to stop going on it.I've been getting brown discharge for over a week and its getting to be black. I'm getting cramps like I would on my periode, and I gained weight and increased my apetite. At the begining it was great but now its getting to be terrible, almost like I would prefer to have my periode over this.

I have been on many pills, Ortho-Tri Cyclen, Cyclen, Yasmin, and Seasonale. Seasonale made me have lots of cystic type acne (the kind that really hurt), I gained about 10 pounds, and felt terrible all the time. I do not recommend this pill.

It had caused me to be depressed, which is the reason I won't be using it anymore. I've also experienced a good amount of hair loss. No spotting, however, or weight gain. I also didn't find it to affect my sex drive. Not the worst I've used.

have only been on this for a little over a week, i was really worried i would have spotting right away as i was on a low dose pill before and i spotted non stop from the start. i am going to start out with 5stars and i will review again after the first 3mos or if something i HATE happens within that time frame

I switched to this pill after being on the nuvaring,which was a constant hassle.I like the only having 4 periods a yr idea,however the nausea I have every morning from it can be a pain but what I'm mostly having trouble with is the fact that I learned it causes hair lossI'm starting to get that side effect Come to find out after doing some research that there is quite a few birthconrol that causes this problem including the Nuvaring.

i dont think i would even give this a one! im in the middle of my 6th week now, and just a week and a half ago, i was throwing up,extreme stomach cramps diahrrea, dizzy and everything for no reason. my daughter was sick too, so i dont think it was all contributed to the birth control. but today, especially now, i just DONT FEEL GOOD. i feel like im gonna hurl, since i have been on it i have been pretty lethargic. my mood has been horrible. i have mood swings all the time. so, i am definately going to switch.
