Experience

This definitely leveled out my mood swings! I’m not as emotionally erratic on this as compared to when I was on Ovranette. My breasts were never sore on the pill, but now I have very tender breasts for the 4-5 days before I start my period so I can tell it’s coming. It is worth it though for the predictability of my periods and not having to worry about missing a pill.
