Experience

I have had no contraception for years and my body obviously didn’t agree with this pill. Only took it for a month and had to stop because changed my thoughts, moods and emotions too much. Also messed up my periods. I used to have a period that lasted 3 days. When I took these pills the period lasted 8 whole days, heavy too. Breasts were tender.

It has only been 1 month since stopping taking them and only now do I start to feel semi normal again. I will not be taking these ever again!
