Experience

I’m not able to take combined I weighed up my options for IUD, patch or the injection and felt there was a lot more risks with long term birth control. The pill gives me flexibility to stop when I want and I’ve never had issues if I’ve missed the odd pill. Side effects are worse the first 3 to 6 months but other than that it’s okay. I also urinate more frequently and get UTI’s more frequently than I did before. As soon as you are used to it its great.
