Experience

Taking this pill as breastfeeding. This made my skin awful the minute I started taking it. I know it’s says things may settle after a while but I just can’t wait to see if that helps and I remember the same problem when I took this after my first child. I’ve also noticed an inability to manage my emotions and I get much more stressed, irritable and short tempered.
