Experience

I have mixed feelings about this pill. I have been on and off the pill since I was 16 (now 37) and never really had issues before, but this time (18 months) I have found that I have have had crazy mood swings, from fine to angry to crying in 15 minutes. I feel tearful for no reason and get upset over minor things, so much so that I am now coming off it to see if it helps my mood. I don’t know if it’s an age thing as I took the pill for years without problems, but it’s not working for me any more. However, I am grateful to have had so many years without issues compared to what some people have gone through.
