Experience

I used to take this type of combined for years. I had a break and began taking it again. It caused acne on my face, breasts and back. I have never suffered from this level of acne even when I was a teenager. I took the pill back-to-back and I had spotting nearly every day. I did not notice a change to my sex drive, but my mood was affected, I would feel quite down.
