Experience

Been on this for around 18 months, I eventually came off because my boyfriend was deployed. It was only when I came off the pill that I noticed that my headaches and migraines stopped. I will be looking into another type of contraception.

Experience after taking

Less headache, more relaxed and less snappy towards others. Period cramps are worse than before I started using contraception and more irregular. But this could be the system adjusting still.
