Experience

Since Loestrin 20 has been discontinued I’m yet to find a pill that works for me :(. I’ve tried rigevidon, microgynon, some others I can’t remember, and the implant!! Nothing seems to work the same, I’ve particularly had problems with my sex drive since going off it and vaginal dryness. Does anyone know a pill like Loestrin 20 in the uk!????
