Experience

I switched to this one from Mercilon, it was great no issues other than loss of sex drive so I was hoping this one would bring it back. I’d say it helped a tiny bit in terms of me actually wanting sex but the negatives far outweigh the positives. I’ve had crazy back pain, super-sensitive breasts, late periods, headaches, spots etc. My body really doesn’t agree with this pill and I’ll be switching back to my previous one.
