Experience

I feel a lot more emotional when on the pill, I lost my period when I went off the pill for a year, I have been on the pill for a long time twice in my life, and I’ve always noticed a change in my emotions when I’m on it, I feel like I cry more easily over small things and I feel like meh a lot of times without reason. I feel nauseous a good bit of time, I really don’t think it’s great for women’s health… will be going off it soon and hope to find something more suitable for me!
