Experience

The first two months were fine. Month three was a 16 day period and month four was 40+ days of bleeding, most of those days were so light I didn’t even need a pad but there was always at least a little brownish blood discharge. Got checked out by doc, everything else is healthy so it’s just caused by this pill. I’m going off of it and pursuing getting my tubes tied instead. Previously I was on a combo pill that worked amazing for me but I can’t be on a combo pill any longer (obese and over 35 = high risk), unfortunately. .

Experience after taking

I’ve only stopped it this week so I am not sure if any after effects yet.
