Experience

I started this pill mainly to help with acne but it had no affect on my skin, positively or negatively. I have always suffered from headaches but this pill made them worse and I had a couple of severe migraines where I couldn’t leave my bed. My boobs definitely got bigger which I hate. It greatly affected my mood, it made my anxiety much worse, gave me severe mood swings and I felt like I’d truly lost myself as a person. The only good thing was that it stopped me from having a baby. That’s it.
