Experience

Great contraceptive until the migraines with aura started and I had to stop taking it. I took the pill for 21 months until the first migraine happened. The second one happened two weeks later, which is when I went to the doctor, who changed my combined pill to a mini pill (which came with a lot more side effects, but no higher risk of stroke).
