Experience

I can’t find anywhere/anyone who experienced the same thing on this pill, but for some reason I feel so hot and sweaty all the time! I thought it was just how I am but I’m switching pills next week so will put it to the test. In the evening especially my body temperature is so high I feel like I have a fever. Very strange! Also the symptoms only came on for me after a year of using it, I didn’t have symptoms at the start but now I have barely any sex drive and this weird body temp thing.
