Experience

The first few months of using this pill made such a huge difference, regular periods, improved skin, balanced mood throughout the cycle. However, around 6-12 months in I ended up getting menstrual migraines which got progressively worse with each cycle and the nausea and vomiting started with each migraine. This got so bad that the benefits of the pill were not worth being debilitated each month.

The migraines got progressively less intense after using this pill, although I notice more changes with my mood than I did when using the pill.
