Experience

I wish the doctor has told me about how it can effect contact lens wearers. For 6 years I had horrendous dry eyes and was not able to wear my contact lenses for very long at all. When I started a new job I couldn’t wear contact lenses to the office at all because of the air conditioning. I came off this pill a month ago and I can already feel a huge difference and I can wear contacts until bed time with no pain or dryness now. I also lost my sex drive. I wasn’t adverse to sex but I definitely became nonchalant to it. Since coming off this pill I have felt a noticeable difference, especially around ovulation time. I also experienced vaginal dryness on this pill and had no discharge at all. This meant that every time I had sex I would need to use lube. This has resolved now I have come off this pill and no longer need lube.

Experience after taking

So pleased I stopped. I now track my cycle and feel so much more in tune with my body. With the help of an app I can understand why I feel certain things / moods depending on where I am in my cycle. Can now wear contact lenses again without any issues and my sex drive has returned.
