Experience

I was on and off the combined pill for 10 years, mainly Microgynon but once I was on Yasmin. I didn’t have any physical side effects, but mentally I was in an angry, depressed fog whenever I was on it. I felt like an emotionless robot. It wasn’t until I came off finally that I realised I wasn’t a horrible person and that actually I hadn’t emotions and feelings like a normal person.

Experience after taking

I regained my confidence, and my sex drive! The irony of using the pill to prevent pregnancy meant I had no interest in sex whilst on it.
