Experience

I started taking the pill because I was worried about getting pregnant. I regret taking the pill because it has impacted my overall health a lot. I missed one pill two months ago and ever since then it has thrown my body off. I have irregular bleeding/spotting. A lot of cramping that comes and goes. I also suffer from terrible migraines/ headaches. Sometimes for weeks on end.
