Experience

I find the combined pill easy to take and a convenient form of contraception. I was offered it as a method of shortening my periods and making them lighter, it’s been very effective in this way with positive side effects of improving my skin, reducing period cramps(and increasing my breast size). However, since being on this medication my moods have been lower than ever before and I’ve noticed a slight weight gain, along with temporary hair loss.
