Experience

I liked this contraceptive because I didn’t gain weight, don’t feel overly emotional, my boobs got bigger (was small chested so this was good for me) but for the past 6 months – year I’ve had 0 sex drive and I didn’t know what it could be but I think it’s this pill :( so looking to change soon as there isn’t much point to taking a contraceptive but not wanting sex
