Experience

I have been using this pill on and off for around 10 years. I have tried other forms of contraception like the injection and other pill types in the meantime but have not seemed to have got on with them as well as this one. In all honesty, I’ve been on it for so long that I can’t really remember what it was like to not be on it. But I would definitely say it has had an impact on my sex drive in a negative way. I also can experience really sore breasts just before I am due my break to the extent that it hurts to wear a bra! Overall, I would say the benefits (not getting pregnant, having full control over your period) outweigh the negatives I have experienced.
