Experience

I got put on this after my old pill Loestrin 30 was discontinued. For the most part this pill is very good. I do’t think I have gained weight so far with it. Definitely do not think it causes mood swings. It has made my breasts very tender and definitely caused them to increase in size which for me was a bonus being small chested. Acne wise I have a few small spots which is unusual for me but nothing drastic. The only downside is I have been getting tingling/pins and needles in my head recently and feeling low in energy on occasion and I am unsure if it is related.
