Experience

I’ve been on this pill for 6 years, effects my moods less than other pills I’ve tried I.e. no depression on it but the loss of sex drive is a bit stressful. Also cystic acne… oh the nausea and headaches suck but I also get this peeling skin thing, just on my hands just during pms and then it disappears then comes back at the next cycle..
