Experience

This was the first pill I went on. My periods immediately stopped and I loved it for the first few months (apart from having more oily skin there were no side effects). But I then had extended periods of spotting/light bleeding (sometimes for months at a time) and when I did get a period it was much more painful than they were before I went on the pill. I now often uncontrollably sob the day before a bleed, and feel far more emotional than I was pre-pill.
