Experience

I’ve been on Loestrin 20 for heavy periods and horrendous pain for 7 years. I’m devastated it’s been discontinued and won’t be returning. There’s no equivalent pill so now as of next month when my last strip is used I have to go back to that awful life of pain and anxiety that my periods caused. I had no issues taking it. I gained a stone in weight but I was underweight. My breaths did grow which was needed haha. No other issues.
