Experience

This was my second pill (after originally going on it to help my acne) and skin wise and period wise it was really good, light to no periods and acne was basically gone however I noticed that I had much lower moods and more emotional sensitivity as well as some vaginal dryness, so decided to have a break for a while in order to work out what was caused by the pill and what was just me.

Experience after taking

First few periods were very painful, heavy cramping and nausea but after a few months back to no cramping, very light 3 day periods which are mostly regular. Acne has returned with a vengeance though. Also much less severe pms and mood swings.
