Experience after taking

Stopped the pill due to migraines becoming more frequent, but also being in a position that if I got pregnant it would be okay! For a month or so afterwards my mood was very unstable, but once everything leveled off I felt alot better. Then fell pregnant 4 months after!

Had a similar experience?
