Experience

Aesthetically, I looked great; bigger boobs and clear skin. I loved that I could take the pill back to back to choose when to / when not to have a period. Now I have stopped taking the pill, I know for sure it was the cause of my headaches, made me more stressed, less happy and lowered my sex drive.

Experience after taking

I switched from Yasmin to the non-hormonal copper IUD and I absolutely love having no additional hormones flying around my body. I feel like a new person; happier, more in tune with myself, more rational and able to have better relationships.
