Experience

I recently switched my combined pill to this after my last one cause major mood swings (crying at adverts, irrational anger at plates being stacked wrong, that kind of thing) which were completely out of character. Since switching my moods have stabilised and I seem happier and more myself. One random side effect I’ve noticed is I’m much more up for sex, my sex drive has gone through the roof. I also have a lot more energy.
