Experience

I took it for a long time and was mostly happy with it. I like that the tablets were small and rounded and sugar coated so I could take it without needing a drink if I had to. My periods were very regular, light and easy! After taking it for about 5/6 years I felt that my sex drive was poor and my mood was poor and I generally felt sluggish. My skin was awful and I had constant painful spots, which only started when I was about 24/25 years old.

Experience after taking

I came off this pill and didn’t replace it with another at the time. My mood/sex drive improved significantly, but my skin did not improve, and my periods became very heavy, long (duration sometimes over 10 days) and painful.
