Experience

I like this pill because I can do up to 3 or sometimes 4 packets back to back without a period or even any spotting. I usually only get period pains for one day near my due date, this is typically back and stomach ache but it’s bearable with pain killers. I find that when I’m on my break week (I don’t take any pills here) I can feel quite down and low in mood, but as soon as I start my new pill packet I feel normal again so it helps with my moods.
