Reviews for LoSeasonique

Anonymous October 24, 2010

“I've been on LoSeasonique for 2 sets (6 months). I've seen no weight gain, no changes in my skin, and my hair is as thick as ever. I like it, I went off of LoEstrin because I had bad cramps that got worse when I went off it for a year, and pelvic pain (caused by cysts). SO, this birth control certainly assisted with alleviating these issues. It's helpful though to exercise regularly I think. I've had spotting but its nothing compared to my normal heavy periods. I am questioning what other benefits this pill may hold over others. ”

“I started this pill in September 2010, to help treat ovarian cysts and endometriosis. The first week I had nausea and tender breasts, but it went away after that. I had a lot of spotting/bleeding on and off for 2 or 3 weeks at a time for 4 months. It was annoying but better than the awful agony I used to go through every month so I decided to keep taking it, as my doctor told me that spotting/bleeding is very common with this low of a dose of pill, and that some people needed 3 months to a year for your body to adjust. Well, finally after 6 months it was worth the wait because, no more spotting/bleeding and best I have better energy/vitality/ and quality of life having control over my horrible periods. It has changed my life!”

“It is the Best Medicine ever INVENTED! No Issues, No pain, spotting, bleeding, no period nothing. Tried every Birth Control, including Lupron Depot for Endometriosis nothing worked but this. I would pay FULL PRICE & would not care. I pay $150, insurance pays the rest but I have been pain free for over 3 years, and I was diagnosed in 2000 and it is now 2013, you do the math it took 10 years to be OK.”

“I started taking this a month ago for endometriosis and cysts and so far I am miserable. "Back in the day" I used to have no problem with birth control but after the birth of my boys I now struggle with bad side effects (mostly mood related). I am not sure if this is because of my age (40) or if my hormones have changed (maybe both). I had the worst cramps of my life 4 days into my first pack and I bled for 14 days straight and even now continue to have cramps. I also have *very* noticeable depression--but again, I am prone to this so I think the pill just makes it worse. I also noticed today I have gained 3 pounds and I am a hardcore marathon runner--so I know it has to be from this pill.”

“I realize that everyone is different. I have never written a review for a medicine before, but felt compelled to share my experience with LoSeasonique. I found it helpful to read reviews from women who had similar experiences. I only lasted six weeks on this pill. Because space is limited, I will just list the symptoms. Horrible hair loss, severe acne (I'm 42 and had clear skin), depression and anger, and lastly very heavy bleeding. I ended up weak and tired from all the blood loss. It was dark blood, with increasing clots. After six weeks, I had to stop. After four days, the heavy bleeding subsided. This pill may work for some, but if you had similar side effects, you are not alone.”

“I've been on 4 different birth control pills in the past 2 years and LoSeasonique has given me the best experience. I have a pretty bad case of endometriosis. I've been on LoSeasonique for almost 5 months now and my first period was a breeze. I had cramps for only one day (usually 3-5) during my period, which only lasted 4 days. My only concern is that when I first started LoSeasonique I started getting awful migraines everyday from the minute I woke up to the minute I went to bed. Luckily after about 3 weeks these went away. I get spotting every so often but nothing that's unmanageable. I also noticed that my bloating has almost completely gone down.”

“I have severe cramping (can only compare to labor contractions) on the first day of my period. My legs hurt and the pain works its way up to my stomach- and leaves me in the fetal position while waiting for meds to kick in. My gyn did a laproscopy in 2010 and it helped until 4-5 months ago. I now have a new gyn and she wants me to try a hormonal therapy (birth control) to eliminate the cramping. I was not happy about taking birth control (had bad results when I took it in my 20's). I am now on my second week of Lo Seasonique and have experienced headaches, lack of energy and no sex drive (which I was never really active anyway). I haven't taken it long enough to see how my body will react to the pain- but I am crossing my fingers. I have not had any spotting.”

“I was prescribed Loseasonique to help manage endometriosis. I’ve been on it for three months. I felt horrible the first week. I decided to give it time. My cramps and periods are worse. I got headaches, depression, increased appetite, excruciating cramps, bleeding a lot more than before; constantly changing pads. I would get no relief from analgesic or the heat pack. I am 43 years old and do not have kids. I asked my gynecologist for a hysterectomy but, she said that would push me into menopause. The whole point is for me to live as pain free as possible. I don’t care if I have a period every month I am just tired of the pain and having to miss work. I would rate this a -0. I personally don’t recommend it.”

“I am on my 5th week of Loseasonique. I read the reviews beforehand, but decided to give it a shot since I never had any problems with other pills (LoEstren and Ortho TriCyclen) back in the day. Unfortunately, the bad reviews were right (for me). I had a little bit of spotting for a few days around week 2, but nothing I couldn't handle. By week 4, I started spotting, and have continually spotted now going on 2 weeks, now with cramps. It's not super light spotting either. I do have to wear a panty liner every single day, and of course I don't want to have sex with my hubby either. I think I will stick it out through the first 3 month pack, but I will be more than likely try something else next round.”

“I was put on LoSeasonique in October of 2010 for endometriosis. I am only 20 years old so the doctors have been trying hard to find something that will work for me and not cause life long effects. This pill did the trick. I have had nothing but happiness with it, it helps the pain of the endometriosis. My doctor gave me 6 months to try it (2 sample packs at once) to see if it worked. I was stupid and took it back to back so I didn't have a period for 6 months. I did spot and bleed for that reason. The bleeding was heavy and painful so as soon as I finished the pack I allowed myself to have an actual period before starting a new pack. Since that mistake, I only had weight gain and it was only 10 pounds. I love it.”
