Experience

Using this contraception since I was 16, very negatively affected my mood. Was the cause of my depression and anxiety. I have to say with that though, I have enjoyed being able to skip my period and have control of that and pregnancy, otherwise I wouldn’t have stayed on for so long. Although I am still taking the pill, I want to be hormonal free and am changing to the copper coil in the next month. I was not prone to depression or anxiety before going onto the pill, and I know this side affect is very common. However, it has improved my acne as well
