    I had the same problem with Marvalon (i think ...) I went to my doc and he basically told me that its different for everyone and you have to find one that is more fitting to you... Maybe you should try a new birth control?

    Hmmm...ya it took awhile for my period to regulate while was on Aleese too. I thought it was just me though. Come to think of it I also gained 10 pound while on it too. Lost 10 pounds when I went off of it to conceive. I thought it was b/c I was eating healthier to conceive though. Perhaps it was the pill?!?!

    I spotted all the times (like everyday ecept one week a month which is the opposite of what should happen) when I was on Alesse. It's because it is a low dose pill.

    The first time I went on it, it actually regulated me (I was having af visit for 14 days, 3 weeks out of the month)... anyhow, it did the job & I loved it. No weight gain, no bloating, my skin looked fantastic!

    Then, the second time, same problem... but it was right after the birth of ds... so I went off of it and voila, dd was conceived!

    It is an ultra low dose of b/c, so that could be the problem...

    Low dose. I had spotting for three months, and constant break through bleeding because of that pill. I am shocked my dh stayed with me through all of that, considering he was only my very new BF at the time.

    When I tried Alese I ended up with a two month period. Now, that was about 9 years ago and I don't know if they've changed it at all but I couldn't stand it. I never stopped bleeding until I went off it.

    I was on Alesse when I was younger and it was fine for 4-5 years. I had gained a little weight and all of a sudden I was break through bleeding all the time. I was like 3 weeks of bleeding/spotting and 1 week without. I'm on a regular BC pill now without any issues.

    I used alesse and had no problems. Maybe try seasonale. You can't miss though, and take at the same time each day. Good luck feeling better. I know so many women have problems with bc pills.
