Experience

I take the pill because I’m always afraid of getting pregnant with the condom. And I also don’t feel pleasure with condoms. I take the lightest pill although my libido is very low and I don’t feel like myself. I hate that my period is a “fake period”. I wish I ovulate like I wasn’t on the pill. Nevertheless, the only thing I enjoy by taking this pill is having lighter periods and I can predict when will my period come.
