Experience

I was originally prescribed the pill for acne for which it was effective but I have since used it as a form of contraceptive. I find it easy to use and haven’t experienced any negative side effects. My periods are incredibly regular to the point that I could pin point the day and hour that my period would start, they last no longer than 5 days and the pain is minimal. However, as I have been on it for nearly 5 years I am unsure to what extent it has impacted my mental health and sex drive as I don’t know any different.
