Experience

I’ve been on the pill for three years now, and have taken time recently to reassess how I’m feeling. I have virtually no sex drive (something which has definitely been a problem and is definitely down to being on the pill). I also really don’t feel like myself, I get incredibly emotional at the smallest things, and I don’t feel in control of myself. Coming off the pill at the end of this pack to try and understand if it’s the pill making me feel this way. Fingers crossed!
