Experience

This pill would’ve been perfect – very light periods, great skin, nausea limited to the first week of taking it. Unfortunately it completely decimated my sex drive. Intercourse, when it did happen, was either lacking in pleasure or downright painful due to the dryness. This stopped within a few weeks of discontinuing the pill. However, my acne flared up again. Looking for some way that I won’t have to choose between good skin and a sex life.
