Experience after taking

Only downside were 1) they are 3/4 generation birth control pills and thus very unhealthy in terms of blood pressure, and 2) my skin got VERY BAD after I stopped using them. I think because they added such a high amount of hormones to my body. So the shift after (which lacked 3 months behind) was very clear and terrible. My skin and hair got awfully greasy and my mood got very bad.
