Experience

I’ve started taking this Pill when I was 19 (now 23) and after trying many different mini pills? (The one you never have a break with) in between (due to high blood pressure I think was caused by stress during uni, not the pill) which caused constant bleeding I was able to return to this one. It gives me hardly any negative side effects and has made my periods so much lighter. The best in my opinion!
