Experience

I’m on the second pack of this pill after trying approx 7 other pills due to heavy periods and extremely painful cramping. My previous pill was Microgynon 30 which caused me to spot/discharge more which has continued with this pill. The skin down there is extremely dry and itchy and has frequently broken into small cuts. Especially due to having to wear liners a lot due to spotting/blood coloured discharge. I have a 6 month prescription so fingers crossed these side effects go away.
