Experience

Horrible mood swings, felt extremely depressed and low and almost went on antidepressants. I know of many other girls who have also had the same symptoms on this pill. It’s also known to cause blood clots and is the cheapest pill to produce which is why doctors put you on it first. Avoid this pill at all costs.
