Experience

I found Levlen ED to be incredibly mild in terms of unwanted or unexpected side effects. I was periodically taking it in combination with anti-depressants and found that the two combined had a bit of an effect on vaginal dryness. But otherwise, it was very trouble-free. I had no issues skipping my period on it – no breakthrough bleeding at all.

Experience after taking

The biggest thing I noticed, aside from period pain and ovulation pain returning, was that my skin went back to being quite spotty with regular pimples.
