Experience

Although I had no problem with the physical side effects of this pill, the emotional side effects were awful. I was highly erratic and crying all the time and taking this pill kick started symptoms of depression, that even when I stopped the pill, continue to be a problem.

Experience after taking

Symptoms of depression continued but I was less erratic. Physically, my periods were longer, more painful and with a heavier flow.
