Experience

My main issue with the pill was that whenever I had a break, I wouldn’t have a period. At one point I didn’t have a period for 8 months so stayed off it for a few years. It made me wonder if I would have been able to have kids in those 8 months? It felt odd not having a period at all.

Experience after taking

As I said previously my main concern was the lack of period after coming off the pill. As my periods began again my skin got worse and my period pains were really bad, when I didn’t have them before the pill. It took quite a while to get back to normal cycle and skin wise.
