Experience

I went on this pill at 15 due to heavy periods. My periods did become much lighter whilst on the pill, however, I didn’t realise how much my mood had been affected by taking it. I felt very numb whilst on this pill and my sex drive was completely none existent.

Experience after taking

It didn’t take long for my body to get back to it’s normal rhythm after I stopped taking this pill. The biggest surprise for me was actually being able to feel emotions again! I had no idea what I was missing out on!
