For the first year of this pill I was really happy after that things started to go down hill. I’ve taken a couple of breaks from this pill in between and my anxiety/low moods disappears. I’m an anxious person anyway and have suffered with some kind of health anxiety for a while but this pill seems to exasperate it particularly towards the end of the pack. I also feel extremely tired and get a tight chest before my withdrawal bleed. I was unsure if they were linked to the pill but after having a break I didn’t experience this at all. Not sure what my other options are now apart from trying the mini pill or copper coil. Benefits of this pill is it seemed to balance my hormones out in terms of weight so I found it easier to lose weight on this pill.
