I really liked Yaz.  Minimal side effects when I was on that one and it really helped my skin stay clear.

I would recommend talking to your physician about your questions and goals for the medication (BC, acne control, etc).  People respond differently to different medications and sometimes it takes trying a few to find the one that’s right for you.

I agree with EvaBostonTerrier.  Heck, I’m on Ortho-tricyclen and I’ve seen a lot of ladies on here complain about it.  I’ve had no issues.

I’ve been on NuvaRing for the last two years, and I love it so much. I’ve never had a single problem, and it couldn’t get much easier.

I love Loestrin 24FE. Took my cramps away entirely, and I normally get unbearably painful ones – I barely even get my period when I’m on it. No mood swings, either!

I’m glad you’re just now starting on birth control for you end of May wedding. Mine is June 12th and I’ve had a couple people make comments about how I should’ve already started.. I was starting to freak out! I’m interested to hear everyone’s responses too.

I’m on Ortho-Cyclen and it works great for me.  Just wondering, how do you plan to regulate your period in 6 weeks’ time?

I have been on Ortho Tri Cyclin Lo.  It has been really good for me.

Oh, nevermind, just read your post above… well… you can always just keep taking active pills if you’re worried you will have your period on your wedding day.  But you’re right, it does usually take a few months for your body to adjust to the cycles.  Good luck!  🙂

Miss Spunkin, you should check to see if your state or local planned parenthood have a program for uninsured women who need access to BC. It’s a pretty sweet deal if you can get on it.

Thankfully my tribe pays for all my prescriptions, but before we had a pharmacy I was on the Minnesota State Family Planning Program, and got totally free birth control and pap smears.
