Experience

It worked very effectively as a contraceptive, obviously, however my sex drive was massively decreased and I experienced vaginal dryness and loss of my period. I also believe it contributed to my mixed anxiety and depression disorder I was diagnosed with and medicated for about 18 months into using it.
