Experience

I started taking this pill partly in the hope of reducing my pre-menstrual symptoms, but it made them worse. I had very tender breasts for two weeks of my cycle, along with increased irritability and low mood, and I also got severe thrush, which I was unable to eradicate completely until a long time after I stopped taking the pill.

Experience after taking

I switched to a different brand of contraceptive pill immediately when I stopped taking this one, so I cannot comment on any effects of stopping.

Had a similar experience?
