Experience

I changed to this pill after microgynon had given me hormonal acne and it has helped a lot. Overall I think it is great. Whilst my periods are heavy the first 2 days, they dissapear/are very minimal for the remaining 3. The only downside I have had is feeling a bit depressed around my period, but nothing too extreme. It has also increased my sex drive which I lost whilst taking microgynon.
