Experience

Heavy periods twice a month and emotions everywhere for the first 3-6 months on the pill, eventually settled down to feeling normal again with easier, shorter and lighter periods that would come every 3-6 months if not stopped entirely. Noticed an increase in sex drive whist getting used to the pill which also settled down over time and may have decreased in the past year. Once in the routine, remembering to take the pill everyday has not been an issue at all, especially with a tracker and reminder app such as Clue. Overall, once my body got used to it, I’ve had a good experience on this pill.
