So i went on the pill from the Depo injection so i already wasn’t having periods. The depo takes a while to wear off so i continued to not have any for the 7 months i was on the pill. I forgot to take the pill a lot to begin with but eventually got into the habit of taking it every morning. I didn’t notice the impact on my mood until i came off it and after about a week or two i realised how much happier i felt for no explained reason. I saw myself laughing more and feeling more bubbly. Luckily i didn’t have any woopsies but i did have to take the morning after pill a couple of times as a precaution! This pill has the days of the week written on the pack so you can keep track off what days you have taken and when you have forgot.. in my case i totally forgot about it for a few days and suddenly realised!
