Experience

I tried various brands of pill and kept getting changed due to supply of what was available rather than out of choice. All side effects I have had from this pill have been fairly minor and even during a year pill break I didn’t notice any real changes aside from more painful cramping whilst not on it. It can be difficult to know whether emotions and moods I have around the time I’m due on are due to the pill or perfectly normal and pre-existing but I don’t feel they negatively impact my life enough for me to stop using it.
