Experience

Whilst the pill improved my skin and gave me the appearance of regular periods vs the irregular periods I was having it significantly changed my mood and personality negatively. As a migraine sufferer the frequency of my migraines went from monthly to daily with GPs prescribing further medication to treat them. After coming off the pill my migraines have almost disappeared and my mood is far more positive and get up and go. As a result of my experience and the negative changes I experienced I strongly recommend against this form of contraception.
