Experience

I’ve been using this contraceptive for over 8 years. From the age of 17 I had tried about 3 different pills to find the right one for my body type. I was put on gederal (at the time it was called Marvalon) and everything went back to normal with me. My weight and moods have fluctuated over the last 8 years but I do not think that this is to do with the pill. I have always struggled with cramps at the time of period, but on this pill the cramps only last max a day on the first day of my period. I’ve been very happy with this pill and have stuck with it for about 8 years so far.
