Experience

I’ve been taking this pill for a year and a half, and I feel like the symptoms have gotten worse over time and it’s starting to affect my mental health and relationship as it made me lose my sex drive completely. Will be switching off to a new one asap. The only good thing was it stopped any bleeding and the painful cramps!
