I've been on Alesse for about a year and I really like it. I did gain a little weight (5-7 lbs) and my boobs did get bigger, but I'm away at college so the junky school food I've been eating probably doesnt help
. It didnt change my sex drive at all, and it did help my complexion, but it didnt totally clear everything up. I never had really bad periods before I went on the pill but it did make them a lot lighter and it helped reduce the minor cramps that I did get. I do feel a little bloated before my periods but nothing too major.
I really like Alesse, I switched to it from the shot and it made a huge difference. Hope this helps!
