Experience

It’s been a good fit for me, as I wanted something less invasive, and remembering to take it hasn’t been a problem. The main thing I like about it is that you can take two packs back to back if you want/need to. A negative is not so much the contraception itself, but even though there are studies showing that continual pill taking back to back isn’t harmful, I often feel judged by the doctors if they can see I’ve taken a few packs back to back, which they make clear they don’t approve of.
