Experience

At first I was in love with this pill. After struggling with hormone changes affecting my mental health for years I was so happy to find this actually settled me down overall. My periods stopped straight away. I haven’t had one in almost a year. The downsides are; I now get migraines of which I have never had before this year. I think it has caused weight gain. A plus is that my boobs are ginormous now. I have spots on my back on my shoulder blades and spots on my face now. Before this pill, I had 0 problems with my skin on my face or my back, and I believe this pill is the cause of the spots and the migraines 100%. The weight gain, who can be sure.
