Experience

I went on this contraception 10 years ago for polycystic ovaries so I am mainly using it for medical reasons. There have been various different apps that have helped me remember to take it and track my breaks too! Only side affect I’ve experience are minor ones listed above and mood swings prior to coming on which is usual with periods anyway! I have gained weight and lost weight over the last 10 years however, I have lost weight and kept it off so it hasn’t affected my weight.
