Experience

I was on this pill to help my already bad skin. However, this caused severe acne, and severe migraines. No one told me this until I had been put on Isotretinoin for my skin and thought it was all my fault I was gaining weight.

Experience after taking

Now I’m off the pill, I have lost 3kg, my moods are normal and my skin is amazing. I still suffer with migraines, and still do have a loss of sex drive but over all switching to the implant was my best decision.
