Experience

I’ve used this since I was 19 and had great success. No huge side effects – bit of weight gain perhaps and maybe a dropped sex drive occasionally. But by and large it has agreed with me a lot.

Experience after taking

I got pregnant very quickly both times after stopping this pill – Within a few months both times. No other real side effects that I noticed, other than my periods getting noticeably heavier.
