Experience

I’ve had very minimal problems using this pill other than loss of sex drive (kind of what I started taking it for lol). Honestly though, it’s been really easy sailing with this pill, lighter periods, helped my acne, no crazy side effects. It has a low dose of oestrogen so I think that helps. I will be switching back to this one once I’m finished with my new one.
