Experience

Within 30 days of starting this pill the symptoms started and were just awful, really uncontrollable mood swings which left me feeling in despair, hair loss but worst was a suspected DVT which left me hospitalised. I stopped this pill after 5 months and within 4-6 of stopping it i seen a huge positive difference

Experience after taking

Felt so much better within 4-6 weeks of stopping this pill. I experienced vaginal dryness which i had NEVER experienced before. I do have a slightly higher BMI which i know can add to the side effects but the side effects were horrendous on this pill

Had a similar experience?
