Experience

I was always very happy on this form of contraception. It never had a negative impact in my health and in some cases it actually helped my moods/skin/weight etc. My periods were lighter, consistently lasted for 5 days and always came 2-3 days after I’d finished my 3 week pack. Would recommend.

Experience after taking

I have beej off this contraception for a month, and yet to have my period return which I know is normal. My moods have dipped ever so slightly but I now from pat experiences this is the case for me. I have had some tenderness in my breasts and an increase in discharge but other than that no real issues.
