Experience

I was taking this pill for almost 10 years. At the time I loved how it made my periods manageable and didn’t realise the impact it had on my moods or weight. However, when I came off, I noticed I lost a lot of water weight/ bloating and my mind seemed lighter – I was definitely less emotional and things didn’t get to me like they did when I was on the pill.
