Experience

First off, this birth control that was promised to have no effect on weight made me gain 60 pounds (no real change to my lifestyle), made me have a year long period (with no breaks, 365+ days of bleeding), I’ve had four miscarriages, we are still trying to figure out if my MYRIAD of other health issues are a direct cause of this birth control or not but I’ve been put on heart medication because of how much it has screwed with my body (if it is the direct cause) I do not reccomend this birth control to anyone and I highly reccomend you do yourself a favor and avoid it at all costs. I’m also 19, got it in when I was 17. I have been unable to get it removed because my doctor refuses to.
