Experience

This method of contraception worked well at reducing the flow and painfullness of my periods. I didn’t notice a drastic change in my weight or mood nor did I experience any migraine headaches. Overall this contraception worked really well for me and kept me protected from unwanted pregnancy, I would reccomend to others who are looking to lighten/halt their period and are able to be consistent about taking a pill. I experienced one negative aspect – but I think this might have just been my body, if I didn’t take the pill at exactly the same time each day (or up to an hour afterwards) I would experience a kind of period; the discharge would be similar to what you would experience at the end of your period and would last a couple days.

I felt the same as I did on the pill, except I experienced an increase in my sex drive and less vaginal dryness.
