Experience

Have been on the patch for over a year. Pill didn’t go well with me so tried it out. Absolutely loved it for a while, even though at first it felt like it made my mental health worse. It was good for a while but then I started getting pregnancy symptoms everytime I put a new patch on after a patch free week- hormonal spots, cramps, really really bad depressive and angry swings. I also hate the way it looks. I would bleed whilst it was still on. Hopefully coming off of it will improve this stuff!
