I'm fantasizing about a BCP that clears up my acne, evens out my moodiness and PMS symptoms, lets me skip my periods, and is just all-around awesome

Anyone have a BCP pill that you just love?

I am very stable on the one I take. When I was off it to TTC, both times, my cycles were so miserable that it was a relief to get pregnant - I actually felt better 1st trimester pregnant than I did having my cycles. I'm taking ON 777.

Yes, I LOVE mine. Loestrin 1/20 (or generic Junel).

I was on Lo/Ovral for years and loved it. I wanted to skip periods, but to avoid breakthrough bleeding I eased myself into it on this pill (GYN ok'd it, too.) Instead of 3 weeks on/1 week off, I would do 6 weeks on/1 off, then 7 on/1 off, etc. until I was at 8 or 9 on/1 off. It worked perfectly for scheduling my period when I wanted it to be.

Prior to coming off BCP last summer, I was on Seasonique for over a year which I also loved. That one uses low dose hormones during the period week (12 weeks regular/1 week low dose) instead of sugar pills. I picked that over Seasonale (sugar pills during period) b/c I was getting menstrual migraines.

Trying to learn/prep as much as I can in hopes of someday becoming a WAHM!
