Experience

I was on the mini pill for years – it was generally fine but I would occasionally have a number of weeks/months with a lot of bleeding at irregular times. I also now have a number of chats on my ovaries despite not displaying other PCOS symptoms

Experience after taking

I came off the pill in December to try to conceive. It took a number of weeks with symptoms of nausea, tender breasts and cramps before my period came back and it’s not quite regular yet. 6 months later and we have still yet to conceive
