10 Jul 2010 It's a good drug, it gives me less depression symptoms than other drugs, and since I laready suffer and get treated for depression, most birth controls make me have a few days of hell. this one is much better than the other two I have tried.

08 Jul 2009 I have taken many different types of birth control pills for 19 years in search of the right type of pills. Alesse I have found, has the lowest level of estrogen, thus minimal mood swings.
