Experience

The negative emotional effects were bad, lots of crying. I did not feel like I got on well with this pill at all. My partner really noticed this as well. When I felt down it would often feel without cause and not like me.

Experience after taking

I got changed onto Marvelon afterwards so hard to give a ‘no pill’ review but mood really improved and less spotting. Having been on three pills for me Loestrin was by far the worst.

Had a similar experience?
