Experience

I’ve had no real problems for 2 years taking microgynon but then everything started to go wrong at the same time ,my mood swings have been so up and down I’m crying then I’m angry then I’m crying again ,I’ve been bleeding heavily between periods ,the last one lasted 20 days!!obviously I’ve seen a doctor and have stopped taking this pill now but I think the pill should only be something you take for a very short time until you decide on something of term
