Experience

A pretty mean pill in my experience. My boobs went from an A to a C in a matter of weeks, much to my boyfriend’s delight! However my moods were horrendous. I was not safe to be driving a car, I was so so low on these pills. And then on 7 days pill free every month i felt like I was getting back to normal. One to avoid if you have a history of mental health issues! I use Desogestrel now, which has had no effect on my moods.
