Experience

I found taking any form of pill lowered my mood and I was very “up and down”. Coming off the pill has been the best thing to stabilise my emotions overall…though I do still get pms/ and emotional lows the week before I’m due on.

Experience after taking

I feel better knowing body is free of chemicals and back to my natural cycle. My mood more stable. I do not think I would go back to using a pill again…
