Experience

I’m about to finish my 6th month on this pill and I am highly rethinking continuing it. I was recommended this pill by my gynaecologist as I have never given birth and it was my first ever birth control pill. The first two months were awful to me due to migraines (which I normally never have) and severe mood swings. After 2 months and a half everything seemed to have normalised however going into 6th month of taking the pill, my migraines came back. I also been feeling very low, angry and anxious. I have gained weight and am constantly constipated and bloated. Oh and yes, I’ve lost my sex drive completely which makes me feel even worse :/
