Experience

I was put on this pill because of PCOS. At the beginning it was ok I didn’t feel any different however for the last 2-3 years it literally changed my personality. I became irrational and argumentative at certain times of the month it also killed my sex drive. I came off this pill June 2019 and am now pregnant however, I’m incredibly nervous about going back on this form of contraception because of the detrimental impact it had. My husband can 100% notice the difference and has said even pregnant I’m a lot more relaxed and chilled out compared to when I was on this pill.
