Experience

I’m always reluctant to take any kind of hormonal birth control, but I had surgery for Endometriosis and my surgeon was keen I take something for three months after. I’d previously taken microgynon and hadn’t liked the affects so we decided on a POP instead. I’m only a month in to taking it but am not enjoying the effects it’s having at all. I’m very emotional and paranoid, have extreme fatigue and my skin is the worst it’s been for ages.
