Experience

In general this pill has been very good and reliable- I’m on it mainly to help very heavy and painful periods and on previous pills I spotted. In the last 6 months I’ve had very tender breasts in the last week and a half of the packs. I think it flattens out my emotions a bit, and I have basically no sex drive so am thinking it might be time to come off it.
