Experience

I have been on about 5 different types of pill throughout the years. I first started the pill due to painful periods and back acne. Each pill cleared the acne and somewhat helped my periods but affected my moods a lot. I often feel down and can’t explain it and I’m pretty sure it’s my pill, which has also affected my sex drive! I would love to stop using it but I’m afraid of getting pregnant or using a coil (I’m very squeamish)
