Experience

I’ve been taking Microgynon 30 for the past 3 years and at first, I didn’t notice any side effects and thought this was the best pill. Until a year ago I started noticing that I’ve completely lost sex drive, it started impacting my moods sometimes I’m all good and then all of the sudden I’m feeling my lowest out of the blue. Over the past 1/2 years, I’ve also started noticing more pimples on my temples and chin and I used to have quite dry skin and now my t-zone is completely oily
