Experience

Not the best combined pill I’ve been on it has caused my moods to be low at times and every week before my period starts I experience hot flushes Hormonal headaches and bad mood swings and my breasts are always tender and sore to touch I’m thinking when I’ve stopped the last 3 months packet of pills I have I’m going to try out the Nuvuring which is a low dose horemone inserted into the vagina that may have less hormone effects i give this pill a average score because the headaches are terrible and I’m changing to the nuvuring once my pills are all gone
