Experience

Not having periods has been amazing. I also think it’s helped me manage my weight better (I have poly cystic ovaries PCOS) and have found maintaining my weight a lot easier on this pill. Overall, I’d recommend this as the best contraception I’ve used, although sometimes I do worry about being on artificial hormones for so long. The combined pill made my migraines more frequent and adversely effected my mood.
