Experience

When I first started this pill, I felt very nauseous and lost my appetite but a few months later this has stopped. Also my skin broke out a bit at first but has since calmed down. My boobs have grown a lot since, they are still very tender and swollen even after a few months but this hasn’t had a hugely negative impact. In terms of my mood, I’m not sure how it has impacted this. I struggle with MH problems and have felt depressed but I cannot be sure whether this is related to the pill.
