Experience

Was on this pill for years and never really had a problem apart from intense mood swings and sex drive completely disappeared, just wasn’t interested, energy levels were also affected and i started hating my body image and just no confidence at all. It really affected my mental health, my moods were all over the place and I cried over everything, very painful periods to the point I was unable to move when I got a cramp and they became so much heavier than normal. My skin was affected massively too where I’ve never had a break out but I got so much acne around my chin and mouth that it was so sore and built up. I also put on weight despite regularly exercising!!!

Experience after taking

After I stopped this pill I felt myself again, almost like a cloud was lifted. My mental health increased loads and I was overall a happier person, stopped having painful periods and my skin started to slowly clear up again and excess oil on my face stopped.
