Experience

I was on the mini pill for 6 years without any issues, before stopping to have a baby, I thought it’d be the easiest contraception to go back onto especially as I was breastfeeding. It was awful! I bled every other week, my moods were so negatively effected, I felt nauseous all the time and couldn’t shift the constant headache. I absolutely loved it when I was first on it, but after having my little one my experience was the complete opposite.
