Experience

A big issue I found was irregular bleeding which didn’t go away throughout my time using it. The biggest issue that I found though was the effects on my mental health. I started to suffer from anxiety – anxious breathing, social anxiety and anxiety at work. This wasn’t me at all. I lost my last packet and so came off it for a couple weeks and noticed all of these feelings have started to go away. Not 100% sure it’s purely down to this but I definitely won’t be going back on it and will stick to condoms for now!
