Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • As a first time user of oral contraceptive, I decided to take Althea since it is low dosed and would not aggravate my migraine. I took the first dose at the start of my menses and after 7days, the menses turned to little spotting which is normal for me when it's ending. The next day, I started having menses again, not heavy but kind of moderate. Not too red, but pinkish with some white in it. I also have minor cramping, which I always experience during my course.
