Experience

I originally went on the pill to clear up my skin and it worked wonders for that. Since coming off the pill, my skin has gotten worse. However it was giving me terrible migraines every few weeks, with an aura, so the doctor advised me to stop taking it immediately. I’m now taking the mini pill.
