Experience

This pill was fine with me, I used it for 5 years without problem, I didn’t experience any low mood problems but I know this is quite common with this brand. However, in the past year I have had terrible hormonal acne and gotten a lot of headaches and migraines (some lasting for days at a time). Because of this I am switching to another brand which will hopefully suit me better.
