Experience

I have been taking this pill for 10 months, currently finishing the package to stop completely. Acne all over my face, shoulders, and arms (not even during puberty I had this issue) around the 4th month, had night sweats which stopped now. I started experiencing hair loss/thinning after 5 months of taking this pill (all the hair that comes out have the bulb of the follicle attached to it), currently waiting on some hormonal tests I asked my GP to check on that. Haven’t had my period in 7 months. My mood is terrible, nothing motivates me or brings me joy anymore and I am over emotional (pretty much the smallest thing makes me angry). To top it off I have completely lost sexual desire. I was advised to finish the package before stopping which is what I am currently doing.
