Experience

I started taking microgynon and everything was great. Skin was nice and clear, periods had gotten lighter. Then into about 1 year of using it, BANG! Mood swings from hell, tiredness, bloating and I’d spend 3/4 weeks worrying in case I was going to burst into tears again, I had 0 control over my mental and hormonal state. The week off the pill and I was all happy, smiley again!
