Experience

No problems at all with the pill even though I was initially nervous to take. I am prone to anxiety and had terrible panic attacks as a child and I have been absolutely fine. My periods have stopped and it’s improved my overall health as I am not as anaemic as I used to be and I don’t have cramps anymore. I love that I don’t have to faff around with my contraception and my bf and I can be spontaneous with our sex. If you’re nervous to try this pill I would recommend just trying it and monitoring your symptoms daily – you can always come off!
