Experience

I have been on this pill for the last few years it has completely stopped my periods. However, I now suffer with really bad back pain and pain in my sides which is worse than when I had a period. I used to suffer with this pain once a month for a week or so, but over the last couple of months, I have noticed the pains to be more intense and consistent. It has also had a negative impact on my mood recently.
