Experience

This contraception was amazing for my acne; completely cleared up my skin. However I did have a low libido whilst taking and after a few years decided to come off and see how I felt. Unfortunately around a month after coming off I noticed symtoms of silent reflux and reflux has persisted every since (6 months later). Now I don’t know if this is connected to coming off the pill or not; and there isn’t a lot of information online but would be interested to know if anyone else has experienced this.

Experience after taking

I thought it would help sex drive but I haven’t noticed this however I have been dealing with reflux issues which may have impacted my mood so I can’t say for sure.
