Experience

I gained a lot of water weight during my time on this pill. The spotting almost like a light bleed most days and was not pleasurable. I’m sure if I took the pill for longer and without a break (which I took a few of during my time taking it) my body might have settled. Sex drive was non-existent and I just felt bloated and ‘off’ the whole time I took it.
