Experience

Constant spotting on this pill and it caused me to breakout very frequently. I did think, however, that it helped to balance out my mood.

Experience after taking

My breasts hurt SO much when I came off the pill and this lasted a few weeks and now it only comes on before a period. My periods are now regular with no spotting at all and my skin has cleared up, almost instantly! I do find that my mood is more up and down though.

Had a similar experience?
