Experience

I was on this pill for 4 years and whilst it seemed great to me as i had no visual symptoms or could not feel or see any changes to myself. I had close to hypertension and noticed how anxious i was getting, so i went to the doctors and they told me about my high blood pressure so took me off the pill straightaway, I do not know if this pill is the cause but I now have the Mirena and i have normal blood pressure so I would say it is most probable that the pill elevated my blood pressure. HOWEVER, it was a good pill otherwise.

Experience after taking

I got the Mirena inserted straight after and best decision I have ever made. But I cannot say if coming off the pill has caused anything due to not having experienced it without another form of contraception.
