Experience

I was suffering from severe anxiety PMS and painful cramps that happened even when I wasn’t on a period. The mini pill got rid of all of it. The massive increase in breast size- 2 cup sizes was not welcome. Itchy breasts as they expanded, heavy, general weight gain around middle. Fatigue.
