Experience

I have just started on the Levest pill, so this is for the newbies. I started taking the pill on the first day of my period. I had no issues. Made my periods MUCH lighter so they went from lasting 6 days to 4 and I experienced no cramps, which I usually do. So it definitely helped my periods. As far as skin goes, I have seen no change. I experience acne and it hasn’t helped yet, but I have only been on the pill for less than a week. Within the week however, I experienced pain in my leg- which is always a sign you should watch out for. Despite not having the other signs of a blood clot I contacted my GP and was told to go to the emergency room for a blood test. Test came back negative for blood clots, but I will always be cautious from this day forward.
