Experience

I was put on this pill (continuously, no pill-free week) because I was having heavy, long duration periods with cramps, which was unusual for me. This pill just made my periods even longer, I had no cycle anymore, and at one point I bled continuously for 3 weeks. The nausea and pain and negative mood made me feel constantly miserable. After 8 weeks, doctor advised stopping taking it.

Experience after taking

It’s only been 1 week since I stopped taking it, and my bleeding still hasn’t stopped, however my mood has noticeably improved and the nausea has subsided.
