Experience

I started on this when I was told my blood pressure was too high to stick with my current mini pill ( which was fine ). Within a few months I began to experience crazy outbursts of anger in which I could sometimes even shake I was that furious. To the point I was having arguments with strangers in Tesco. How embarrassing. All over the slightest things. I also gained almost 2 Stone in 6 months. I came off it before I ruined my relationship due to my snappy, horrible behaviour all of the time. My boyfriend was very glad lol. It did however stop my periods completely which was great! All in all would not recommend. I’ve been off it for 5 months and my periods still haven’t returned to normal.

Experience after taking

I feel tonnes better in myself. I have increased sex drive and am significantly less angry and hormonal than I was on this pill.
