Experience

Been on the pill for quite a while after Cilest was discontinued. I am finally coming off the pill after tracking my mood for around 6 cycles. My boyfriend and mum kept telling me how bad my mood was but it took tracking my mood to realise. I have felt so crap before my period and spent Atleast 1.5/4weeks feeling terrible. I have been to therapy etc but finally realised its my pill. I wouldn’t recommend taking this pill. The mood swings are just terrible. Only good thing is improvement in skin. But it’s not worth it for the lows
