Experience

Overall the pill has been better then originally thought – after reading some awful reviews and scaring myself. The main thing I have noticed is the awful headaches I get on my week break from the pill each month, which are said to be due to a drop in oestrogen levels, which means I regularly have to take painkillers to help this. Other then this it has been okay, but has made my anxiety a lot worse and can get quite nervous much easier. I think I would rather not take it, but overall it’s okay but it could be better!
