Experience

I was offered this pill when I was 15 as my first venture into contraception. I couldn’t even finish the pack I just felt so weird! I had leg pain/restless legs after taking it was about a week. I wanted to come off straight away, which I did. I was advised at the sexual health clinic to finish the pack and carry on taking it so my body would get used to it but I just couldn’t.
