Experience

I took this pill everyday at the same time for about four years. I had some of the ‘usual’ side effects such as mild headaches and some spotting between periods but compared to some other brands I’d previously tried these were fairly minimal. I stopped taking this pill because even though I took it religiously at the same time each day, hadn’t been ill, hadn’t taken anything that would impact its effectiveness I fell pregnant while taking it twice. I just didn’t trust it afterwards.
