Experience

This is the first mini pill I’ve tried & have taken it now for nearly 4 months. I’ve taken it regularly as instructed and not noticed anything too negative about this pill. At first I had periods as expected but much lighter as they where very heavy before. I experienced light cramping during these. I then had two periods in a month 2weeks apart, both 5 days long and light. Since then I have not had a period but I am experiencing a feeling like I might come on which is weird.
