Experience

I have tried practically every contraceptive you can get and they all have their pros and cons. This biggest issues with Levest for me was vaginal dryness, decreased sex drive and the absolutely awful mood swings. These tablets drove me into depression and my relationships around me started to disintegrate. I used to take microgynone. I didn’t have as many issues with that tablet weirdly… but apparently there were some negative links and were too expensive to dispense anymore.
