Experience

Overall this pill made me miserable, I had very poor skin that I’d never experienced even in my teens, I had cysts underneath the skin around my cheeks/nose and my skin flared up continuously. I wasn’t actually told that this pill would completely stop my periods but I didn’t have one.

Experience after taking

I took myself off this pill by myself after appointments with my doctor weren’t going the way I wanted and I felt I wasn’t listened to. My skin improved drastically and mood improved, 6 weeks after coming off it I had a ‘period’ but my cycle is still regulating itself now 4 months later. I have only just started ovulating, after being advised by a friend to track my cycle with an app and take ovulation tests. My goal wasn’t to get pregnant but I haven’t used protection and we still aren’t expecting.
