Experience

I am unsure whether the pill affected my mood due to external factors when I was on the pill. I was concerned that the lactose in the pill was disagreeing with my stomach as I possibly have IBS and am also vegan, and coming off the pill definitely helped my stomach flare up less.

Experience after taking

I came off this pill by switching to another which I then came off a week later so I’m unsure exactly which caused the side effects. My sex drive definitely increased (for the better) but my skin is worse – not acne but the pill stopped my usual spots, which are now back up
