Experience

I was switched to this pill after issues with supply of my prior contraceptive pill (norimin 1) due to covid. Whilst I did not experience any weight gain, during the initial stages of taking this pill I suffered for unnecessary depressive mood swings and severe hormonal headaches (which did not experience prior to beginning this pill). Whilst the depressive mood did subside after about 3 months on this pill, the hormonal headaches continue to be an on going issue (I am currently looking into switching to another contraceptive pill due to the severity of the migraines). It should be noted that I suffer from PCOS and such my main reason for taking contraceptive pills is in order to regulate my hormones and period. In that regard this pill succeeded and I did not experience and spotting.
