Experience

This pill was fine with me. When adjusting, I haven’t noticed any big changes. Was on this for around 3.5 years when diagnosed with PCOS. Stopped it because the last 4-6 months of using it, I started getting headaches during pill-free weeks that would last all day for maybe 3-4 days, terrible. Also, during those 3 years I have experienced migraine with aura once a year (probably) which would last around 15 minutes. Mood wise I was fine. Sometimes I’d sweat easily, probably due to raised anxiety levels (not diagnosed with anything though) although I think that could be also because of the mental strains due to lockdowns and Covid.
