Experience

I have been taking this pill for a long time. It has worked for me and I have experienced the least side effects compared to the other pills I have previously taken. I don’t have periods which for me is a positive as they used to be painful and heavy. The only thing I have noticed is a reduced sex drive. I sometimes take breaks from the pill and notice the difference between my sex drive when I’m on the pill and off it! It’s not detrimental to my relationship and overall I am happy with this pill.
