Experience

I was put on this pill at 18 due to a family history of cancer stopping me from using the combined pill. I experienced continual bleeding for the first 3 months, which settled down after this. Initially, my periods stopped, but more recently they have returned and become very irregular, with months passing between periods. On top of this, each period lasts for a very long time, with the average period being 2.5 weeks or so. I already experienced back pain, migraines and headaches, so although I still experience these on the pill, I cannot be sure of how related they are. Overall, this pill does the job, and I like that it has to be taken everyday with no breaks, this works well for me.
