Experience

I don’t mind this pill, was a bit scared about not getting a period so was paranoid I was pregnant but it’s fine. Only thing I don’t like is that I’ve just started my 5th pack and I’m still spotting pretty much every day with some cramps, I know they said that it can take a few months to get used to it but I’m going onto the 5th month now. Also started to get big, painful spots on my neck and back which I’m not a fan of.
