Experience

Initially I was pleased with this pill – after suffering with terrible migraines on the combination pill, I moved to this pill. Periods stopped completely, headaches went and my skin got better, BUT about 6 months in it all went wrong, weight gain, bad skin (spots plus super super greasy), low moods and sadness and then the headaches returned. I’ve stopped taking it for week now and have had some really bad headaches and nausea but seem to be feeling better now. Mood seems better too. We’ll see what happens next!

Experience after taking

Skin seems to be getting better and moods are better too. Suffered really badly with what felt like withdrawal headaches and nausea but that seems to be lifting now.
