Experience

All I will say with this one is give it 6 months to settle down! I had quite sore breasts on and off for the first 3 months and after the first 3 months developed quite bad acne. With an adjustment to my skin routine and 3 months of patience it’s virtually back to normal! Get the odd cramp every now and then but virtually never have periods (and if I do, they’re very light and last 1-2 days) but has settled down massively. My sex drive also returned from 5 years on the combined pill and reduced my moodswings – overall I would recommend it despite the hiccups!
