I'm 4 weeks into start Seasonale.Had period before starting pills.I started spotting this week.Will spotting likely stop?How long b4 body used to it?
Varies: Seasonale is protecting you but some breakthrough bleeding or spotting is a common complaint. It is most common with the first package and may stop but it also may last for the entire 3 month pack. Some women find that their body never tolerates/adjusts to periods only every 3 months but most find it is better with the 2nd pack. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Hello,,,which medicine is most effective to stop periods among Lybrel, Seasonale or Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD....which medicine is most effective and better???
Pills or IUD?: To be effective, pills need to be taken daily, and there may be some interaction with other meds. If there are side effects, it is easier to stop taking pills. Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD needs to be inserted/removed by a physician and gives protection up to 5 years. Lybrel is intended for consecutive 365 days but with Seasonale there are 4 periods a year. Your doctor can help you decide which is best for you. ...Read more

Not really: May take a cycle for things to go back to where they were. Interesting choice for woman with acne. Most likely the progestin in this pill levonorgestrel too strong for you. Good in that it helps to limit breakthrough bleeding (bleeding when you should not bleed), but can be tough to tolerate for some women. Discuss with gyn less androgenic progestin pill. They will understand. Best of luck Dr R ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Gained almost 12 lbs since i started taking seasonale. I started it in december. I've been working out, eating healthy and still gaining? What can I do
Switch: Seasonale contains levonorgestrel. This is an older Progesterone that is more likely to cause weight gain than some of the newer progesterones. You may want to switch to a pill that contains a newer Progesterone (desogestrel, norgestimate, drospirenone) or switch to an iud as this is less likely to cause weight gain. Avoid Progesterone only methods as they are more likely to cause weight gain. ...Read more
