Experience

I loathed this pill, it let to a loss in sex drive, sore boobs nearly constantly, terrible mood for at least 2 weeks out of the month coming up to my period and an increase in weight. I also started having headaches most afternoons that I put down to staring at my laptop, but since ceasing this pill, they have also dissapeared! I asked my GP to change me onto a different pill and I am now a different person!
