Experience

This pill worked very well for the 10 years that I was on it but I wish I had known more about what would happen when I stopped taking it as I wasn't prepared for those side effects.

The reviewer also experienced the following after effects...

Very greasy and dry hair

Experience after taking

My experience coming off this pill was not a good one. I got very greasy, dry hair. I had spots on my face, neck and back when my skin had been clear before, but my sex drive increased. My periods took a very long time to regulate again (with the help of medication).

Had a similar experience?
