Experience

I have only just finished 21 days of taking this pill and now on my 7 day break. I felt very nauseous the first couple of days, have had light bleeding/spotting constantly from day 7 to present and my moods have been terrible. Uncontrollable crying, quite low general mood. I hope this resolves soon or I will have to stop taking it. The last time I was on the pill was 5 years ago, I came off due to a relationship ended but also remember having negative emotions possibly from that. I had an IUD for a few years in-between but my body did not like it.
