Experience

I never had any inclination that this contraceptive pill could affect my mental health in such a severe way, I hated life, had no sex drive, wasn’t interested in anything and the fact that my periods had reduced to such a small few drops every month stressed me out unbelievably. I read an article online about someone else that felt the same and she came off her contraceptive and her world changed. I tried the same and the results are unbelievable! I’m unrecognisably happier, I’m not stressing over periods anymore, they have returned to normal, I’m back to enjoying sex and don’t have any issues with dryness anymore. Coming off this pill was the best thing I ever did!!
