Experience

I’ve only been using this pill for a few months, as I’m no longer allowed to take the combined pill due to headaches. It’s stopped my periods pretty much all together, except for the odd day of spotting once a month. I do also get regular cramps during the week I would have a period. For me, the downsides are a complete loss of sex drive which is very disappointing and also my skin has gotten quite bad – and I’ve also started to get spots on my back which hasn’t happened before.
