Experience

I was moved to this pill as a result of having intra-uterine fibroids due to the lack of estrogen – my previous combined pill was giving me debilitating cramps around the time of my withdrawal bleed and it became unbearable. Since I don’t get periods with this pill, all of my cramps have disappeared and a recent scan showed that my fibroids had reduced in size! Bonus. Also, I’m saving money from not having to buy sanitary products and me not using them has environmental impacts – added win. My skin is much better and I get occasional spots on my chin due to mask wearing, but that’s about it. The downsides to this pill are the reduced sex drive, but I think I’ve found that with every single pill I’ve ever taken. It is, however, the price I’m willing to pay for not being in horrendous pain every month. All in all, positives for me outweight the negatives.
