SEASONALE: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Abnormal Uterine Bleeding “This birth-control is the worst! If you were OK with having consistent bleeding for over a month, then this is for you. If not, try something else because this is not worth it. I am now on week eight and still bleeding/spotting. I wish I would’ve read the reviews before starting this prescription. I hate it. If I could rate it a zero, I would.”

For Birth Control “I was on this pill since the end of April, and everything has gone downhill since then. I bled for 21 days straight, then the bleeding stopped for about two weeks. After that, I bled everyday for the remaining two months, up until the sugar pills. Once I started a new pack, everything went great for the first two weeks. However, I started bleeding AGAIN midway into the third week. It was at that point, that the remaining patience I’ve had for this pill was lost. Yeah, this birth control truly does prevent pregnancy, because it prevents you from having sex in the first place, due to the never-ending shark week. 🙁 I’m switching to a stronger pill, because this is my FOURTH month on birth control, so I should not be bleeding this much.”

For Birth Control “I have been on Seasonale for about 9 months and it has worked great so far! I switched from Sprintec because I noticed that I was moody, had low libido, and felt very nauseous often. It can be kind of scary not having a period for three months on Seasonale, however, because of not knowing if you are pregnant or not, but I have not had any scares (I took my pill religiously besides a couple times). I noticed that cramps are a little worse when I do have my period, probably because I don’t have my menstrual cycle as much. Overall, I don’t get moody or nauseous nearly as much as I did on Sprintec, and it’s so nice only dealing with a period 4 months a year instead of 12!”

For Birth Control “I have been on Seasonale for almost a year and I am switching to Sprintec. I am switching because the breakthrough bleeding and cramping became ridiculous. I would have my withdrawal bleed, have about 1-2 months of peace, then the spotting began and would not stop. I’d double up for 3-4 days or however long it took to stop it then go back on 1 pill when the spotting stopped. 2 weeks later the spotting would return, rinse and repeat. The cramps during the breakthrough bleeding were worse than the cramps during the withdrawal bleed! I’ve had enough of this pill and am switching to Sprintec and hoping for the best.”

For Abnormal Uterine Bleeding “I have been on Seasonale for over a year now, and it is the only birth control that has actually worked for me, after going through 6 other brands. I went from having very heavy periods and cramping for 7 days, to having a very light (hardly there) period every 3 months. It also managed to clear up the cystic acne that came along with it. My only issue with it was that for the first month or two on the pill, I did have some spotting and bleeding, but it quickly went away, and haven’t had any bleeding since then. Other than that I haven’t experienced any other symptoms, and I highly recommend Seasonale!”
