Experience

Done the job and prevented pregnancy, however, gained a lot of weight. The weeks when I had a break from the pill I would lose weight and then when I started taking it again I would gain weight despite exercising regularly and watching what I was eating. Couldn’t shift the weight. Had little to no sex drive. Irritating having to take it at the same time every day and always worried I was going to forget it.

Experience after taking

Hormones and period very quickly returned to normal. Took a while to shift the weight, potentially retained a lot of water but eventually dropped off.
