Experience

I felt very different, quite soon on this contraception. Low mood and no motivation. I was very tired and didn’t want to do anything. Acne came on strong and my skin was so sore even to talk and smile. I never suffer with acne so definitely hormone related. Mood swings and no sex drive. I felt awful and would not have this again.

Experience after taking

I’m only a few weeks off this contraception. But my mood and skin has improved a lot already. My motivation is back and energy too.
