Experience

Overall does the job! Easy to remember to take it, when I’m on it’s fine it’s when I stop then start taking it a again I feel sick and get headaches. Periods aren’t as painful anymore and I like knowing when it’s going to come. Helps me plan holidays better. The only downsides is my mood really and not always having sex drive.
