Experience

I was happy because one of the first reasons why I decided to take the pill was because of my acne and it was a real improvement. I’m also happy to have a control over my sexual life other than the condom. But now that I’m having an other look at it, I feel like it might be at the roots of my mental issues, my increased anxiety and my constant change of mood. I’m considering stopping it but for the moment I can’t really see an other alternative that would suit me.
