Experience

I was told to stop Marvelon which I’d taken for 10+yrs due to cervical erosion after treatment so was put on Lizinna. I have noticed my hair is the thinnest it’s ever been in my life, my skin is going wild including on my back which I’ve never had before & I get what I can only describe as ovulation type cramps but this is supposed to stop you ovulating?! Also, I usually do have quite a high sex drive but I’d say it’s at a low now, as is my mood which are probably due to pain & changes in my appearance – I know it’s vain but I just don’t feel myself at all on this pill!!
