Experience

Have been using this pill for almost 3 months and I have decided to switch to Yasmin at the end of this packet. My chest was really sore for the first month or so but it wasn’t unmanageable, I went up a few cup sizes and my periods were much lighter and I had little to no cramps! However, the bloating and persistent low mood have put me off this pill, people also said how different I had acted since being on it and I experienced mood swings quite a lot. Felt like I had permanent brain fog while taking the pills then during the 7 days without taking them I felt like a completely different person and was way more emotionally stable.
