Experience

I should first say that I don’t use this pill as a contraceptive, I started using this pill at 18 to “improve” my acne but it entirely wiped it out and gave me perfect skin instead. I’ve been on it ever since and years later I thought “I don’t need to be on this if I’m not having sex” so I came off but the hormonal acne came back. I have absolutely no adverse side effects whatsoever when taking this pill and feel great when on it so my doctor saw no harm in putting me back on, even if it is primarily for my skin.
