Experience

The pill has cleared my skin from acne, made my period cramps bearable because before the pill my cramps were unbearable. However, it has heightened my depression and mood swings, lower my sex drive and changed me in general. I wouldn’t recommend it if you are lucky to not have bad period pains.
