Experience

This was the first pill I tried, seemed great to start with, my skin was clear, boobs grew and I was just happy to be protected. But my mood gradually changed, it wasn’t something I was completely aware of, but by about the 6th month in I found my self crying at every smallest thing multiple times a day. Developed social anxiety where I found it so difficult to get the courage to go out with friends, and just generally felt very low. Came to a point where I decided to try a different pill, and I’m allready feeling so much better.
