Experience

I have been using this pill for 2 and a half years now. The only issue I have with it is headaches just before I’m about to start a new pack, which I’ve never experienced with periods before, either on or off contraception. Sometimes I have very light bleeding just before I’m about to finish a pack, which means my periods can last for more than a week. Otherwise my skin is better, my periods are lighter and my boobs have grown.
