Experience

I took this pill for two months, however, due to the bad skin eruption I had as a side effect, I decided to change it. My acne worsened within a week of starting taking this pill. I did not experience any other issue, other than some spotting in between periods and a couple of episodes of migraine during the pill break. Having PCOS and already acne-prone skin, I have been advised to swap from a pill containing Desogestrel to one with drospirenone.
