Experience

I took this pill continuously since 2017 and have little to no side effects. I am only having to change due to my doctors being unable to get it anymore. This was the first pill I was on and I found little issues with it. I took it in order to stop my periods – if I missed a pill occasionally I would have spotting for a few weeks after but this was my only real side effect.
