Experience

I was originally on Femodette and I had really bad side effects with that pill (little to no sex drive, low mood) so I took a break from it for about 2 years and now I’m on Gedarel 20/150 after being reccomended it by a friend for being low dose. I am feeling a lot more positive about it. I still get bed period cramps but I have always had this problem. I will reassess after the first year and see if they are still right for me
