Experience

Noticed taking it straight away, had lots of symptoms: sore boobs etc, also the breakthrough bleeding is just miserable. Bled consistently now for 3 weeks dark, brown blood which is really getting me down. Also intense pelvic pain and back ache during the night. Have decided to stop taking! Not prepared to ride it out and see if it’s just my body getting used to it! Back to condoms for us!
