Experience

Got on with this pill fine for a year or two but unfortunately the cons are now out weighting the pros. Feel like it’s changed my personality. It’s made my anxiety worse and every week before my period I feel depressed, just no motivation and cannot stop crying. Coming off of it now as I want to feel like me again. Pros – improved acne, regulated periods, alleviated severe period pain and heaviness Cons – depressive moods, mood swings, anxiety, irritability, lower sex drive
