Experience

This is my first combined pill, and I’m really happy with it. I’ve had some issues – mainly spots, some cramps and cyclical vaginal problems, but this is much more manageable compared to the issues I had due to periods. I run packs together with a 4 day break every 3 months now, but when I was having a monthly 7 day break my bleeds were much lighter, with less pain and fewer PMS symptoms. I could try other pills for fewer side effects, but I’m happily settled on this one for many years at this point.
