Experience

At first it is definitely something you have to keep in mind at all times in regards to making sure you take the pill at the right time everyday. It made me super grumpy and angry at everything. My patience was pretty much non existent and everything was a trigger. It definitely made me a more angry person and quite unhappy, I definitely saw a change in my mood and my approach to things. Also having to keep the pill hidden in my room because I didnt want my mum to know I’m sexually active was a lot too, it was added stress for no reason. I’m so much happier off the pill and I don’t think I would go back.
