Experience

I am generally a very happy and positive person but taking the pill made my mental health the worst it’s been. I was very sad and cried everyday (I never used to cry) so I decided to come off it. Also I’ve been told you can just skip periods with no effects but I would still bleed heavy whilst taking the pill if I hadn’t had a period and come off it for a week.

Experience after taking

Ever since coming off it I am so much happier however there has been a loss of libido but I’ve researched and found this is normal for a few months after stopping the pill.
