Experience

Having stopped using this contraception two weeks ago, I have felt great, with no sudden drops in mood (almost daily anger & sadness bursts) that I was previously suffering from. Now I am drastically less irritable and anything bad that happens does not automatically become the end of the world! For two years I have been an emotional wreck and glad I finally realised that it could be the pill causing it. I wish I had realised sooner, but other things were happening in my life at the time that I assumed I was going through depression. Hope this helps, if it sounds similar, stop taking it for a few weeks to see if it's the pills fault!

Experience after taking

Less than one week after stopping I was much happier and positive, my boyfriend noticed straight away, which he is happy about as I have been awful to live with for the past two years!
