Experience

I have been on an off this pill for a long time (only off because some doctors din’t like you being on it for too long due to the increased risk of blood clot, while others say it’s fine if you are low risk anyway). It is prescribed for bad skin, and anytime I come off it my skin gets really bad again. It also gives me lighter periods and no negative side effects, other than slight weight gain.
