Experience

I was on the POP for 4 years and really didn’t like it – my periods completely stopped but if I missed a pill I’d end up having a month long period. It also gave me absolutely terrible acne, which cleared up when I stopped taking it.

Experience after taking

Skin cleared up, found I wasn’t piling on weight any longer. Went straight on to a different contraceptive so can’t say when my periods would have returned to normal.

Had a similar experience?
