Experience

This contraceptive was prescribed following negative side effects from progesterone only pills I was taking. The combined pill did remove the previous side effects but brought some of it’s own; the worst being complete loss of sex drive teamed with enlarged and very painful breasts. I recently switched to another brand of combined pill after taking Gederal for 3 packs.
