Experience

I have been taking this pill for 6 months now and I am on my last two pills in order to finished the package and I will definitely stop taking it. The first 3 months of taking the pill were alright but I had gained 5-6kg. My breast did not growth however it was swollen and hurt sometimes. My skin got better but definitely not worth it. My decision about changing the pill is the PMS syndrome and even the PMDD. The last two months exactly at the end of the package when I had left 5-3 pills I experienced depressed mood, panic attacks, anxiety and sadness which go away after the second day from the start of my period. Definitely this pill is not for me.
