Experience

I realized that I lost my sex drive after a few years taking the pill. Additionally, I had the feeling that I was constantly in a very neutral mood and could not – positively or negatively – react to my surrounding.

Experience after taking

It really took a while until I regaind a normal cycle. It was interesting to discover myself and my feelings without taking the pill. Even if it is sometimes harder (e.g. mood changes), I don’t reget it. I definitly feel better and more normal since I stopped taking the pill.
