Experience

I have recently just started this pill and quickly noticed a massive change in mood. I feel like I’m losing my mind, I don’t want to see anyone or be around anyone and don’t want to leave the house. This has literally started since taking the pill. I have taken the pill previously last year and the same thing happened and I came off it because it affected my mental health so badly then I got pregnant. I wouldn’t recommend this pill personally however do feel like I’m stuck with it for now and it’s either feel crazy or another baby, which is a no from me.
