Experience

When I first started taking the pill for 1 month it was fine, with little side effects. After, I stopped my periods and I was constantly very bloated making me very uncomfortable. I also became a lot more emotional, and started having body dysmorphia leading to anorexia, anxiety and depression from which I’m still recovering from. I stopped the pill around 3 years ago and I’m still suffering from the mental health problems it triggered.

Experience after taking

My body dysmorphia and emotions which I started having throughout the pill turned into more anxiety, depression and anorexia.
