Experience

For the first few years I thought this pill was so much better than the ones I had previously been on, but in the last few years I definitely noticed it impacting my moods, my breasts were constantly swollen and sore and I had no sex drive. I only realised these were all side effects after coming off the pill, I feel so much better after stopping it.
