Experience

I went on this Pill at 15. It’s been absolutely fine for me, not awful side effects that I know of. I found my skin has been pretty consistently clear and my boobs definitely grew when I first went on (but this could be my age) I’m now 23. I would say I do suffer with random bouts of anxiety occasionally. After finishing my 21 days I do suffer with low moods and pretty bad mood swings before I come on my period. I have donated my eggs and found that being on the pill for so long has not had any sort of effect on my Fertility which is great!
