Experience

I was on this pill for 2-3 years when I was 16 and had absolutely no issues. I came off of it for a while and tried the mini pill which wasn’t for me . I came back to this pill after giving my body time away from oral contraception and suddenly it was like the complete opposite pill, not sure wether this is to die with hormonal changes as I’ve gotten older? But this pill made me suicidal and gave me massive anxiety issues.
