Experience

I overall didn’t really have a problem with this. I was getting really bad acne on my cheeks and literally as soon as I started taking this I completely stopped getting pimples… which is great!!! I did notice I had a few mood swings – nothing too bad. My boobs got a little bigger but on the 7 days off the pill it got back to normal and then when I started taking it again it grew a little, vice versa. I also did notice my bloatings lasted longer. The only thing i have to complain about this is how PAINFUL my cramps were on the first day i got my period. I have always been lucky to barely ever get cramps when i was on my period, but seriously the first day cramps i felt when i got off the pill just for 7 days were the WORST. This was my first time on the pill and I don’t have any seriously complaints at all xx

Experience after taking

I have only been off the pill for a couple of weeks- acne hasn’t come back (😁) but it might be because of my skin care routine. Boobs have gotten back to normal size. No change in weight whatsoever. Overall have been in a better mood I think.
