Switched from Estrostep to Cyclessa, please read....

can anyone tell me if i did this right??? i switched from estrostep to cyclessa because cyclessa is covered on my insurance...i liked estrostep and wanted a similar BC...after talking with a pharmacist she said this was the one that matched the most b/c its tri phasic...or whatever they call it. so, i finished up my pack of estrostep, took the iron pills, had my period, and when sunday rolled around i started up cyclessa like normal...was that the right way to switch BC??? i didnt miss any days or anything like that...someone please answer if you can.

my last question is...has anyone taken cyclessa?? any feedback on the drug is greatly appreciated...thank you!!!

Re: Switched from Estrostep to Cyclessa, please read....

Yes, you did that correctly. You should be just fine.

Whenever you switch from one pill to the next, it's a good idea to complete the pack you're taking, allow for the week of placebos, and then begin your new pack of different pills on that following Sunday (or whatever day other people start).

So you were exactly right the way you did it. No worries.
