Experience

Started mini-pill after years of struggling with different combined. Thought it was great at start – no period for 2 months, then a 2 week period, then nothing for a month or two but then slight bleeds everyday non-stop for 6 weeks. Stopped taking it 4 weeks ago & bleeding stopped pretty much straight away. Unsure whether to go back on.
