Experience

I have been on this pill for around three years. I have had no joy out of it. I always get headaches, which I shouldn’t do as I also have piercings to prevent this. I also find my moods and mental state are very bad/negative, which they never used to be. I have experienced weight gain but not a major amount. Overall this pill has done nothing but make my periods lighter and made my life a mess. This shouldn’t be allowed!!!!
