Experience

I was moved onto Lucette as an alternative to Yasmin. I’ve previously been on Dianette and Marvelon as prescribed for my previous acne suffering, it just so happened to come in useful as a contraceptive so that’s why I’ve stuck with it. However, I have no sex drive whatsoever which is putting a downer on my six year relationship so I am currently seeking alternative contraception. I feel as though I don’t actually know who I am without being on the pill, I’ve been through different variants since I was 14-15, I’m now 26 and considering the alternatives now I know my skin is in a better place.
