Experience

I previously tried the combined pill a couple of times when I was younger and had a truly horrible experience with my mental health so didn’t have high hopes for the mini pill. HOWEVER I now very rarely have any periods and what I do have is very minimal which is a huge relief because I used to have terrible periods. I have noticed that I now hold a little bit of weight around my stomach which I never did before and my skin has always been a bit poor so it’s hard to say if there was much change there. Occasionally I’ll get a little bit of “spotting” but it’s barely anything. Compared to my experiences with the combined pill this has been a total dream and I can’t recommend trying it enough.
