Experience

I had to change pills due to my old one being discontinued. Since changing to millinette I’ve gotten noticeably worse skin which I can’t attribute to anything else. I have been on it around 9 months but have had thrush a good few times and each episode quite bad. A plus is that my periods are light and I feel like it affects my mood less than my previous pill (although it still has some affect). I’m a runner and noticed that I have been sweating more in the past 6 months or so- it didn’t cross my mind that it was related to changing pills but seeing the option in the side effects on here has made me think again. Never had an issue with that on my old pill :S
