Experience

My only issues with this pill, is that it gives me headaches and has made me discharge drastically. I went to the clinic to check that I didn’t have an STD and I came back clear. Then I checked what side effects this pill can produce and vaginal discharge is one, but a rare one. The headaches are on and off but this might be partially due to me not wearing my glasses. Aside from this, everything else is fine. My wright, my sex drive, mood swings and my periods have become more regular. My flow hasn’t changed (still heavy), but it’s easier to product, so I can plan when to go on holiday or swimming. Overall my experience has been okay (so far)
