Experience

Changed to this pill after having headaches and mood swings on various other pills, this pill resulted in 2 blood clots on my lungs after 1 month which required hospital admission and 6 months worth of treatment, although the chance of this happening is low, I swapped and changed my pill a number of times to try and find one which worked for me however I would recommend carefully considering the options rather than keep swapping and changing methods after my experience.

Experience after taking

My mood has definitely increased significantly and my periods have returned to normal fairly quickly after the original reason for my going on the pill was more to do with this irregularity. Overall I I feel generally a lot better within myself.
