Experience

Started using this when I was 16, was good for a year or so until I started getting headaches. Went to docs and they said it was normal, so I just carried on taking it until the headaches got so severe it was actually a migraine with aura and I did not know. Turns out that can cause a stroke and luckily I was persistent with the doctor and eventually came off them. The pill also increased the amount of acne on my face and top of my back, lowered my sex drive till it was almost nothing and made me moody as hell.

Experience after taking

After I stopped taking this, my skin started to clear, my mood swings were a lot less and my partner noticed a massive difference at how much more positive I was being, my sex drive also returned to normal within a few months.
