Experience

I went on this pill after experiencing extremely low mood on one with more estrogen. Whilst on this pill my mood seems absolutely fine. My skin is great and my sex drive hasn’t changed. The only issue is that halfway through a pill packet I experience 4 days of a light period even after being on it for 1+ years.
