Experience

To be honest, I do not think there are any forms of insanely good contraception. There’s always a catch. This pill is better than my last (microgynon) so far even with all the side effects that I’m facing. But for me the tiredness is really starting to get to me. My sex drive has decreased slightly but in a way that I’d rather just pleasure myself than have actual sex with my boyfriend simply because it’s easier for me and I find it hard to climax when on the pill.
