Experience

I’ve been taking the pill for 4 months and am going to stop since I get headaches and migraines at least once a week, sometimes with nausea and vomiting can only be caused by the pill (I’ve made dietary changes like less caffeine, and chocolate etc) but hasn’t made a difference. I’m disappointed since the pill was the least invasive method and seemed to be working fine for me apart from the unbearable headaches.
