Experience

I went onto this pill after taking Rigevidon for a few years, as that didn’t help with my acne. This pill worked amazingly for decreasing my acne and actually gave me confidence again seeing as my spots reduced so much. However, the biggest side effect I had with this pill was terrible vaginal dryness, loss of sex drive and low moods. I think I was so anxious about how dry I was and with the decreased sex drive, I felt like there was something wrong with me, when it wasn’t- it was the pill.
