Experience

I went on this pill March 2020 as I always thought the POP pills had minimal side effects and all seemed good at the start. It completely stops periods and I NEVER had cramps. However I noticed over the months I became more and more prone to just wanting to cry…even though I’m a very happy person. I would feel very emotional some days. Also I know we had a lockdown but this pill made it very hard for me to lose weight and I never used to struggle with my weight at all. I would say overall it made me almost a stone heavier and even with a PT, balanced diet and walking over 10,000 steps every day I just couldn’t seem to shift it. Sex drive seemed ok although perhaps made me drier. No thrush or headaches. Boobs got bigger and quite sensitive. But 100% affected my mood. I wouldn’t recommend it.
