Experience

The most significant symptoms I first recognized was a lot of spotting, discharge and withdrawal bleeding from my vagina. I’ve had to wear pads everyday since starting on the pill. Secondly, my breasts feel very sore and tender, which makes exercising and sexual activity a bit challenging at times. However, it’s not until now I’ve realized the pill might affect my mood because since starting the pill I’ve felt a bit low/sad and experienced more crying than normal; even had depressive thoughts. It may also be due to lockdown, or a combination of both.
