Experience

I’d tried a few different contraceptive pills and all of them made me feel really sick and I couldn’t continue taking them. This pill has had very few side effects and has made my periods lighter and shorter with no cramps. It’s quite a low dosage which is why I haven’t been sick on it but it’s worked well for me. It’s not an especially common brand (I was put on it after 3 other brands) so sometimes you have to wait for pharmacies to order it in but that’s the only real downside I’ve had with this pill.
