Experience

I liked this pill, it was very consistent and helped to deal with my symptoms of endometriosis very well. Unfortunately they have stopped manufacturing it, so I’m now moving to a different contraceptive pill. In the last few months of using it, however, my periods became very irregular. Sometimes not coming at all, being very heavy, or just spotting. This was annoying. I also noticed that I began to have daily discharge which was unusual for me before this pill.
