Experience

I would not say this was too bad overall, has made my skin slightly worse and made my periods heavier and a little bit longer than on my previous pill. Biggest issues has been the dryness, I actually want to switch because of it, just creates too much discomfort. Also made me cry a lot more but I guess that is standard.
