Experience

Onto this pill due to Loestrin 20 being discontinued. This pill has had no effect on my moods (that i've noticed), my skin is clearer and people have commented on that. I have gained weight which is annoying and discharge is a lot heavier all the time, but these are a small sacrifice to make to have a pill that doesn't screw up my head
