Thanks to Seasonique my blood pressure went up really high after taking it for only a couple of months.

I went from having normal Bridal Party for 25+ years while on other BC pills, a 140 pound weight loss and healthy diet to taking Seasonique and having dangerously high Bridal Party. My doctor was amazed and took me off of it immediately. Unfortunately it has had lasting effects and now with using Sprintec my Bridal Party is slightly elevated (but still in the normal level). Thanks to Seasonique I have to have my Bridal Party monitored every few months while I continue to take a BC pill. 🙁

@alaska_99705:  Seasonique KILLED me sex drive. Also I spotted for six months on it…then gave up. Lol.

I didn’t have any spotting but I gained about 30 pounds in the month and a half after starting it, with nothing else in my lifestyle changing. Everyone reacts differently to different pills….this is the same side effects people have with all birth control pills.

Oh, and I should say – after a year on it (took it while backpacking in Asia to avoid periods), I switched back to my old triphasic and the 30 pounds came off with zero work in a month. So I really do think it was the pill.

I was fine on it except for the spotting. It drove me nuts.

I loved it, was on it for almost 2 years.  I got off of it in april & am now almost 5 months pregnant…ive always had really low blood pressure..i guess the side effects are different for everyone

I loved it! however when I started taking the generic it RUINED my skin. But the name brand was the best pill I’ve been on.

It’s been several years since I was on it and I only used it for one pack/cycle. But when my period finally came, it was heavy and didn’t stop for almost 10 weeks. Ahhhh! I want to cry just thinking about The Worst Period Ever.

I was on Seasonique for over 2 years. It did take a couple of months for my body to stop being all “WTF” and adjust. My doc said that is totally normal. After that it was great! No weight gain/loss, no Bridal Party changes, no sex drive issues. My skin has been acne prone since I turned 22, regardless of the pill I was on.
