Experience

This contraception made my periods heavier after having no periods on my last pill. I’ve also noticed an extreme loss of sex drive which I’ve never experienced before which has put a massive strain on my long-term relationship. Overall I’m so dissapointed in this pill after having such a positive experience on my last which stopped being manufactured
