Experience

Discontinued use due to bleeding for 6 weeks while taking active pills. The bleeding peaked with several days of heavy clotting and pain like no other pain I had experienced. It felt like my body was fighting the pill. After discontinuing the intense cramping ceased and after my next menstrual bleed I started another pill.

Experience after taking

This pill was my first contraceptive pill experience. After I went through many brands to find one without unmanageable side effects
