Experience

I’ve always had anxiety and depression but on this pill it became very severe, debilitatingly severe. I got to the point where it was unbearable and I had no choice but to stop using. Did help my acne a bit, made my oily skin very dry. Gave me some occasional severe cramping after sex. Very tender breasts for the first 3 months.
