Experience

I’ve been on desogesteral for a little over 18 months and I had the best experience for the first year, no bleeding or extreme side effects. Around November time I got my 1st period and now they have been very irregular since. I Experience about 2 sometimes 3 periods a month and it makes me very anxious. I’ve spoke to my GP and they tell me it’s normal! Can someone please email/get in contact with me if this is also happening to them. My email is Chelsea.huggins11@gmail.com
