Experience

I used the microgynon 30 from my 16th till 30th as I didn’t know better. I quit at some point as I wasn’t in a relationship and I didn’t want to take hormones anymore. When I was 32 I met my husband and started the pill again as we didn’t want children yet. After about 2 months he asked me to quit the pill as I was very cranky and in a bad mood all the time. I sometimes didn’t recognize myself, I’m always very calm but now I suddenly changed into a screaming fury. After I quit, my mood changed back to normal.
