Experience

This pill has massively affected my mood and sex drive. I feel “numb” all the time and find it very hard to feel positive. My sex drive has completely disappeared and I haven’t thought about sex in months. I went onto this pill from the Millinette 20/75 to try to improve my acne but it did not do this (my skin was bad before and is still bad so I don’t think it made it worse). I am now considering a non-hormonal form of contraception (copper coil) to have instead so I can have a break from the hormones. In terms of contraception and other side effects it has been completely fine. If your doctor recommends this pill for you I would be conscious of my side effects above so you can know if they change for you.
