For Birth Control "As far as birth control pills go, Quasense is the best in my opinion. I tried a variety of other pills that my body reacted poorly to. My insurance covers this pill 100% so I pay $0 when I go in to get my refills. I had spotting for the first 6 months while on this pill and nausea for the first month. It is amazing to only have 4 periods a year. My periods got much lighter and I have little to no cramping or other symptoms. I can also decide when to have my period (if I even want one at all). The only reason I am giving this a 9/10 is because this pill does give me acne. I had very little acne in high school and I started this pill my senior year, 5 years later I am still experiencing acne from this pill, but its very mild. It is annoying to take a pill everyday, but I do not like the idea of irregular bleeding with the implant and the pain associated with IUD insertion. This pill is a gift."

For Birth Control "This pill works for not getting pregnant and that only. I was on it for about 5 years for heavy and painful periods. Within this time, I had gained almost 60 pounds. I was constantly tired, grumpy, NO sex drive and NO energy. My liver enzymes were constantly HIGH to an alarming rate and the doctors could never tell me why. I lost a ton of hair at my temples from this medication and I never knew it was the pill until I quit randomly 5 months ago. I have NEVER felt better being off of quasense. My energy came back, I have been able to drop 40 lbs in 6 months and liver enzymes miraclously are back to NORMAL RANGE. The negative of quitting the pill. I now have lost 40% of my hair from stopping the hormones cold turkey. My body was at mercy of this pill. Do not take this."

For Birth Control "I started taking this 6 years ago due to heavy and very painful periods with awful PMS as well as anemia. My doctor started it as a temporary measure while we tried to figure out what else might be causing the heavy periods and anemia and after finding no other underlying causes my doctor decided to keep me on it. I absolutely love only having my period once every 3 months. It is now much lighter and completely painless. It's also been very effective in preventing pregnancy. Due to other factors I've weighed between 180 and 280 while taking this medication. At the upper end of the spectrum I did see more spotting. If I miss a dose I might have spotting and if I miss a dose in the last month of it I do sometimes start my period, which can suck. However, I'm careful about taking it every day at the same time and it's worked perfectly in terms of giving me a lighter, painless period that I only have to deal with every 3 months and also preventing pregnancy. It hasn't impacted my libido."

For Birth Control "I love this stuff, as does my friend who recommended it to me. I've been on it for 2 years now. I had some breakthrough spotting the first year. To me, this was not a huge deal as my previous birth control gave me crippling headaches and numerous side effects. I found dealing with break through spotting (if and only if I took it a bit late) to be a minimal issue. After being on it for a year, this issue went away and I'm glad I stuck with it. I also gained zero weight from being on this BC. The unfortunate part about BC is everyone reacts to it a bit differently, and it's mostly people who react poorly that bother to review drugs. When it comes to BC, you're only gonna know if you try it yourself, not on reviews. It worked well for me and hopefully does for you too."

For Birth Control "Before I started taking this BC, I was working out and lost 25 pounds. After 9 months of being on this, I gained that back, plus 10 more pounds. No matter how I dieted and worked out, my weight kept creeping up. I ate like I was a pregnant woman. I craved EVERYTHING! I only spotted after missing 2 days of the pill and it would stop once I resumed. I had 1 heavy day and 3-4 light days on my period. I only rated it a 2 because I didn't get pregnant but probably because my sex drive went to nothing. I don't recommend this BC to anyone."

For Birth Control "I was originally in love with this prescription birth control. I had terrible periods and ovarian cysts. My doctor suggested I have a pill that allows my period to only occur every 3 months, which I loved. It was until recently that I noticed that over the last 6 months, I've gained 20 lbs!!! Going into spring 20 lbs heavier is crazy. I also experienced abdominal pain and menstration pain. I love the space between periods and but I don't love the weight. I will be switching back."

For Birth Control "I have been on this for 6 months. The first 3 months I was bleeding heavily and had very painful cramps (also, I had a cyst on my ovary that had ruptured). I absolutely hated it but my Dr. "assured" me that it will take 3-4 months for my body to get used to the birth control and I took her word for it. My next set was amazing! I didn't bleed until my sugar pills but that leads me off to today. I was supposed to be off Thursday and it's Sunday. I am still bleeding heavy and I definitely do not want to bleed again for 3 months. Terrible experience, read reviews before getting on any birth control!"

For Abnormal Uterine Bleeding "I have been taking this medicine for almost 3 months now and during this last month of the pills I have been spotting/light bleeding for a month. I took other pills before and it did not happen. I will be stopping this when I am done with this pack."

For Abnormal Uterine Bleeding "I've been on Quasense for 7 weeks and 5 days and as of today I have been bleeding for 7 WEEKS STRAIGHT! I started my "period" 3 days after taking my first pill and I haven't stopped bleeding since. The first 3-4 weeks were constant heavy bleeding and then it begin to taper off(actually giving me hope). Weeks 4-6 were pretty light, brown blood here and there(but still consistent daily) throughout the day and I was even more hopeful. Week 6 the bleeding began to become heavy again.....Now here it is week 7 and I'm bleeding like I would be on my normal period! I'm OVER IT! This is STUPID!"

For Birth Control "Well, where to start. The only pro I would say that there is with this medicine is the fact I don't get my period. I have been on this for 6 years now. Funny enough I have been SEVERELY AND CLINICALLY DEPRESSED for 6 years. I never feel happy. For whatever reason I never thought that my birth control could be causing it. I have struggled with my weight for 6 years, staying at a steady 145-150 being 4'11. I also have severe back acne which I have had for the last 6 years. I never put the pieces together because I have been on it for so long. I just got diagnosed for extreme pathologic hypersomnia, and I have had the symptoms for exactly 6 years now, it has ruined my life, all I have wanted to do for the last 6 years is sleep. Do not recomm"

For Birth Control "I've been on Quasense for about a year and a half and I love it! I had breakthrough bleeding during my first pack (the first 3 months) but have not had bleeding since. My body just needed to get used to the change in hormones and not having my period every month. I did gain a little weight but that could be unrelated. Big Fan!"

For Birth Control "I have been taking quasense tablets since April 2016....mostly started because of terrible cramping from my period...it does prevent pregnancy but the side effects are horrible....I lost 30 pounds prior to starting this pills only to gain 22 pounds of it back in less than 4 months....I have absolutely no sex drive....and the stomach pains are so horrible that at 30 years of age I asked my doctor to perform a colonoscopy/endo to be sure nothing major was going on with me....I understand that everybody is not the same however....I would not recommend these pills to anyone!!!!"

For Birth Control "Absolutely terrible. I never had chest or back acne, now I'm covered. I had excess discharge and bled every day (not enough for period but more than spotting). I ended up with weird bumps all over my arms. My breasts swelled up and had sharp, shooting pains. After losing 20 pounds 3 years ago, I've gained 15 of it back in 2.5 months without any change in diet. My depression has been higher than it has been in a long time. I have no sex drive; how can I when I'm bleeding every day at unpredictable times? I wish I would've read these reviews before taking this medication. Do NOT take Quasense."

For Birth Control "I was on this for the whole 3 months and let me tell you I was an emotional mess. SO NASTY to all my loved ones for no good reason. I'd get mad and cry over the absolute dumbest things. but, this is my body and that is how I reacted to this birth control. I'm moving on to The Patch now, it has some good reviews and we will see how it works out. I gave this atleast 5 stars because I didn't get pregnant lol"

For Birth Control "Was on it for 3 years. Mostly used to help treat PMS, cramps and headache. While those never really went away just delayed 3 months were less severe, until recently. Lately been having horrible cramps about a week before, and some mild spotting. Did not have my hormone headache and cramps were tolerable with one month bc. Recently talked to OBGYN , she thinks this is my bodies way of telling me should have my period once a month, so back to the one month packs."

For Birth Control "Absolutely horrible.....put both my girls on it for heavy periods.....by week nine both had sores developed on the bartholin gland area. My 16 year old lasted a week and my 19 year olds were worst. Took her to the Dr. tested negative for any infection and to rule out herpes they tested her for that too....which the nurse called with only the infection results and assumed it was herpes and subscribed Valtrex for 10 days and told us to read information on herpes for next outbreak.....of which they didn't even receive any results for yet......unbelievable! So...all in all this is by far the worst experience I've ever encounter with any birth control pill. I SAY STAY AWAY FROM IT.......AND ITS NOT NORMAL TO NOT HAVE A PERIOD FOR THREE MONTH"

For Birth Control "I took quasense for about 3 years and the first two years I loved it. I have tried at least 4 birth controls (oral contraceptive form) and this one was the first to finally work for me. However, within the past year I have had some awful things happening to me and my obgyn thinks it is due to the estrogen in the pill. I had a weight gain of 7 pounds within a week & a half. During this time I was exercising & barely eating to try and get back down to my normal weight. However I only continued to gain weight. I have had so much hair loss this year & now have 4 distinct bald spots. Crazy mood swings, I've had my period for 2 months straight now, & I'm extremely tired. Today I had the IUD "skyla" inserted so I hope everything improves soon :("

For Birth Control "I was put on Quasense to help with abnormal vaginal bleeding. I was on it for less than 2 months when I suffered a near fatal pulmonary embolism (blood clot in the lungs). I am young and healthy and a non smoker... it was caused by the estrogen in the pill. Please know that although birth control is wonderful and it is commonly prescribed, it DOES come with risks. You never think it will happen to you. I am using my very scary and traumatic experience to raise awareness. If you have any symptoms of a blood clot seek emergency medical assistance immediately: Chest pain Shortness of breath Cough Anxiety Fainting Rapid heart beat Swelling or warmth in your leg or arm 900000 people will have one this year.

For Birth Control "I've been on this pill for about 3 years and recently started experiencing some spotting in between periods, even sometimes during sexual activity. I went to the doctor and she said this is normal and my body could now be rejecting it. She had me stop taking Quasense and put me on a one month pill. I eventually switched back to Quasense two months later and haven't had any more issues until recently. This month, my period was 1-2 days but I've been cramping like crazy and not bleeding. That's why I'm here on this thread reading about others experiences. Hope this helps"

For Birth Control "So I have been on the birth control for a month. The first 4 days I was so insanely nauseous. It would just hit at random times and be horrible. I've been having my period the entire time I've been taking it but just like a pantie liner a day is what I use. I haven't lost any sex drive. If anything it's increased! The medication overall seems great in writing but I have one concerning thing.. I'm having CRAZY mood swings. I cried the past couple nights for no reason at all and I just get super sad randomly. Or I'll just be super happy and then the next moment sad. I feel like I'm becoming depressed. But I'm just going to wait it out and hope it gets better."
