Experience

Started taking this pill when I was told I could not take the mini pill anymore due to the possibility of strokes and blood clots after having a lot of headaches. Been on this pill for just under a year. Initially, it did not agree with me at all! I had amazing skin before taking this pill and my face erupted in hormonal acne, it’s taken 8 months to get rid of it (highly recommend the lumi spa or proactiv). My mood swings were horrendous, I had zero sex drive! My periods became irregular, considering this pill is supposed to stop periods. Before My periods were about an hour long and in the past few months, I start it randomly and I’m on for at least 4/5 days. Have bad indigestion since taking this pill not sure if that’s linked 🙈 Recently it’s started to settle down and my acne is disappearing, So are my periods but I still suffer with the other symptoms. It’s a good pill if you can’t take the combined one but as long as you know it could take some time to work properly.
