Experience

Overall, I've had quite a good experience on the combined pill. The only downsides would be tender breasts and that my skin breaks out (mainly on my chin) right before a period. Also can be annoying when going to a new doctor surgery and only being given a 3 month supply (in comparison to the usual year). I don't always take the 7 day break, but apparently we don't need to anyway so that's fine. Wouldn't risk changing to another contraceptive method in case I ended up worse off.
