Experience

So its probably the better contraception iv been on, but by doing this review its made me realise how much it really does affect me. The low sex drive is definitely a thing along with Thrush & and excruciating pains once a month even though i dont really have a period just a small amount of spotting. I also have very low mood and can feel quiet depressed at certain times of the month. I feel like my body needs a break from all these hormones.
