Experience

This was the worst pill I’ve ever been on. The GP did say it’s the cheapest one so they prescribe it to everyone first before trying something else. It made me gain over a cup size on my breasts which were also excruciatingly painful. The GP informed me this was to do with the way my body reacts to progestin. I also found my mood to change and the best way I can describe it is like there is a permanent fog and I don’t feel like me.
