Experience

Caused cystic acne on my chin and jawline. This has stopped since I went back to the combined pill. However periods stopped almost completely which was excellent for my endometriosis.

Experience after taking

Cystic acne went extremely quickly. My libido has increased. Periods came back once I switch onto the combined pill straight away.
