Experience

The pill started off fine for the first 6 months, then it slowly started getting worse. My periods now last 21 days or more and are super heavy. I get terrible migraines, Back pain, stomach cramps, nausea, lightheadness, fatigue, insomnia and horrible mood swings. Constantly feel down on my period and just before and get reallt angry, anxious and irritable. Only get 1 or 2 weeks out of 6 weeks of feeling normal with regular moods and energy.
