Experience

Having only been on this pill for 6 weeks I am currently on my 4th period. This period is only 5 days after my last one!!!!! Periods lasting 7 days and extremely heavy. My mood swings are terrible, very snappy and moody And my anxiety is even worse. I am 36yrs old and my skin is like a spotty teenagers!!!! It’s gross. I am not sure if I should continue and persevere or just stop because it’s just really getting me down now.
