I am 38 and I am not interested in this pill for birth control. I need it for period control. I have read so many people complain about weight gain and their breast going up a size IN THE BEGINNING but no one seems to say if it ever evens out or if they continue to have problems. I think I can deal with any symptom, even weight gain and breast swelling as long as i know that these are temporary while my body adjusts to the pill and do not persist month after month. So to those who stuck with it, do these symptoms even out... oh please say yes! I desperately need help with my periods and the negative reviews have me worried.
