Experience

I was on this pill for 8 years and experienced no negative side effects at all. In fact, my skin improved and my periods became much lighter as I was experiencing very heavy, irregular and painful periods prior to taking it. Unfortunately, I was forced off this pill 2 years ago due to costs/budgets. I have been with two different doctors surgeries and they have both refused to put me back on this pill as they don’t order these anymore. They instead keep pushing cheaper alternatives. I’ve had problems ever since.
