Experience

Started taking after having major problems with my old combined pill. Mood swings definitely eased for me personally, though instead of monthly psycho swings. I seem to have a bad cycle every 6 months or so were I will be very emotional and experience sore boobs, mood swings and cramps. So still not perfect experience but better than my last pill which was the combined pill. Spotting can be a bit annoying though when I am on a good role it is great. No period, no spotting. Just seems to be ever now and then I experience a bad cycle. Not perfect but certainly not bad. As far as pills go, great.
