Experience

When I got put on this pill it initially dramatically helped my periods be lighter, shorter and less painful but after about 10 months my migraines got really bad and I was informed I shouldn’t have been put on that specific pill due to my migraines, one of my friends went through the exact same so be careful!

Experience after taking

I went straight onto cerelle (a mini pill) which limited my migraines and stopped my periods but after a while caused other issues causing me to stop using hormonal contraceptives altogether
