Experience

I’ve tried 6 different pills now and I loved my last one (loestrin 30) but it’s been discontinued so I got put on levest. Physically, it has been the best for me, it has made my periods quite normal and regular and compared to other pills, I really liked it, as I usually have irregular bleeding and dryness, but this one was great for that. However, I have had major mood swings, the majority of the time I am feeling very depressed and on the odd occasion usually around day 14 of my cycle or right after my period, I feel the happiest but go through huge mood swings where I can feel the worst. Very similar effect with emotions that rigevedon had on me too.
