Experience

It was nice being able to control when I had a period (I would take 3 packs in a row so it was significantly reduced frequency). I became less good at taking the pill everyday so I decided to switch to a coil. After switching I realised that the breast tenderness I was experiencing was all down to the pill as it stopped when I stopped taking it.
