Experience

I was happy enough on this pill for about 4 years from the age of 16 to 20, however from 20 onwards the emotional side effects especially in the week before the withdrawal bleed were too much. I was crying all the time for no reason whatsoever which was very unlike me. I switched to the ring at the age of 21 and this definitely helped with the pms symptoms.
