Experience

I was never emotional or much of a crier before using this pill but it really negatively impacted my emotions to the point where me and my boyfriends were at the worst stage of our relationship. It also gave me 4 week long periods and eventually I just gave up with it. When I stopped taking it, it was like I had shaken the grim reaper off my back!
