Experience

I have terrible mood swings so I take the pill to help with my hormones and for contraception. I took Microgynon for 10 years before having children, then had 2 kids and started again. On the nurses advice I take it for 3 months then take a weeks break at which point I have my period. It certainly helps significantly with my mood swings so I highly recommend. No side effects so far!
