Experience

I was on this combined pill for a number of years after dotting around on Dianette and Yasmin for acne. My skin was still clear when on it and I never really had any issues at all. If I skipped a period I had some spotting but overall this was fine to deal with.

Experience after taking

I was on hormonal contraception for 14 years all-in-all including the implant, the mini pill and the combined pill and I wanted to see how my body works without hormones being added to it. I still haven’t had a period and its been over 4 months. Otherwise, I have lost a bit of weight and I’ve gained muscle mass since coming off the pill. My RHR has also dropped significantly. My libido has definitely increased and I feel less foggy.
