Like most others commented, Lybrel greatly improved my life because it prevented the extreme symptoms associated with menstruation. For me, I no longer had the monthly hormonal migraine. Recently, I discovered that both Lybrel and it's generic Amethyst is no longer being produced which has impacted the availability for refills. I have not found another continuous oral contraceptive so I will have to learn to live with the increased of extreme pain again. Has anyone found another alternative?
Seasonique is one that you take for 90 days before you have you have a break week, and that can be stopped by simply starting a new pack when you get to the inert pills instead of taking the break week. The implants are last for 3 yrs and most people experience their periods stopping when they have them.
I'd love to know why they stopped making it since it was just approved in the last few years.
