Experience

I haven’t got pregnant, so it has worked. I do tend to use condoms as well because I do forget to take some pills throughout the month so I am someone that is very cautious. I have been on the pill for around 13 years so I can’t remember what a lot of my life was like before. I am looking at a different type of contraception though as I have next to no sex drive which is really bothering me and want to find out if this is the reason. I like that I can ‘choose’ when to have a period, I regularly double up on packets and ‘skip’ a period that month and this is something that I do like about the pill but I do want to change contraception to see if any of the negative aspects are linked to the pill – headaches, low mood etc
