I've been taking Chanteal for over 6 months and it's terrible. Tons of "breakthrough bleeding" and extra periods (1 to 3 periods per month!), headaches, severe depression, super low sex drive, increased anxiety. I'm a newlywed and my thoughts on a daily basis go to loneliness and divorce -- it's crazy and unhealthy. I was happy and healthy before taking this pill. The Doctor (planned parenthood) switched me to this pill from another one because I was having breakthrough bleeding with the first type of pill (I forget the brand name of it), but I wasn't depressed, stressed, an insomniac, etc.  I keep trying to switch brand to get off of Chantel, but planned parenthood insists I keep on this or get an IUD, which I don't want -- ridiculous!
