Experience

While I was on the pill I was very emotionally sensitive. My boyfriend at the time had read that women can experience negative side affects, something i had never thought about. So I stopped to see how I’d feel and noticed that my overall happiness increased. I was also better not letting everything get to me. Still very pleased that i did and I feel the side affect stigma needs to be lifted.
