Experience

I started taking the pill due to heavy periods and very sore cramps. When I went to the doctor he said it would make my periods lighter and help a bit with the cramps. I have been taking it since I was 16 but my periods are still very heavy and my cramps are so painful. Sometimes I get too warm and feel quite headed, my mood swings are awful one minute I’m happy then the next I’m in a really bad mood. I have been taking the pill for three years and haven’t had any major side affects yet but it hasn’t really made me periods any different or my cramps less sore.
