Experience

I find using this pill pretty good. I have the usually side effects of PMS and then sore breasts and headaches but on the whole it’s good. I previously had 2 years of having one incredibly heavy period once a year for about a week that was completely debilitating and going on this pill has made them more regular and lighter. I know to the day now when I’ll come on and when I’m all good again.
