Experience

Although great for the first few years, I did notice that the pill significantly impacted my mental health and contributed to my depression (once I came off this got much better, although did not go away). I also started with other hormonal issues such as hormonal headaches/migraines and lethargy.

Experience after taking

My mental health visibly improved, and my headaches were reduced. Although my period is no longer like clockwork, I do have regular spaced periods and no bleeding inbetween. The main thing for me has been the affect on my mood/mental health
