Experience

I like the fact that I don’t have a period on this pill as they tend to be quite heavy and/or painful. The leg cramps are the worst part as they affect my sleep and take a while to ease off. I don’t experience mood swings with this pill and haven’t noticed a decrease in my sex drive compared to microgynon. I have had a period a couple times when taking this pill however it is like every 3-5 months, it could also be due to accidentally missing a pill or taking it too late.
