Experience

My second time on this pill as my usual wasn’t available. Gave it another try, have only been on it for a week or 2 and my breasts are rock solid and very tender, I am having what feels like hot flushes with extreme sweating and my mood is lower than normal. Will be getting it changed in the next couple of weeks hopefully as I know my previous experience on Brevinor was terrible too however I can’t say I noticed any changes in my breasts the first time I went on it, it was more so my mood that changed drastically (down all the time, short tempered and crying at the smallest thing – if even anything at all). It may work differently for others but from the reviews I’ve read, a lot of people have had similar experiences. I’ll steer clear of this pill now that I’ve given it a second chance and don’t see any benefits personally!
