Experience

I was originally on loestrin 20 for around 6 years but due to stock issues I’ve been put on loestrin 30. I’m miserable constantly & have no sex drive what so ever, I’ve also noticed weight gain but that could be due to me constantly snacking. Never had a problem with spotting until I was swapped on to this pill had my 7 day break & then had breakthrough bleeding for a further 7 days.
