Experience after taking

when I came off the pill my periods did not return for 18 months & since then have been irregular & I have been diagnosed with PCOS. Before I went on the pill I did not have PCOS but after 10 years on the pill, I now have this condition. I was never informed the impact a full 10 years without a break would have on my natural cycle.

Had a similar experience?
