Experience

Had to change from the combined pill because of my history of migraines that had been overlooked when I was first prescribed it. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with this pill but I just don’t feel super confident about using it as my only form of contraceptive (I think mainly because of the strict 12hour window you have to take it) so my long term partner and I have started using condoms as well. I also find I have a decreased sex drive but this could well be because of subconscious feelings that I’m not protected against pregnancy.
