Experience

Even though I am very good at taking my pills, on time every night, I had to stop taking this pill as I was so badly effected every month. My parter could tell when I was near the end of my strip and due on, because I became a monster. I felt terrible every month. Really down and sad and major issues with self confidence. Massive increase in cramps and pain during my noticeably heavier periods! I really did not get along with this pill at all. At one point I bled none stop for two months, people would avoid me!! Thank goodness I stopped!

Experience after taking

Much better. Was a relief to get off this pill. Periods returned to normal after a few months, no more migraines, no more mood swings to the extent of when I was on the pill. Much better confidence. Just overall relief!
