Experience

I was on the same pill for years and never had a problem until my doctor decided to change me on to this one. Almost immediately big spots appeared on my face ( I don’t suffer with them usually), I gained weight even tho I wasn’t eating a lot, I felt very low and couldn’t stop crying for three weeks at a time and had heavy, long periods. I’ve asked if I can change it but can not get a doctors appointment at the moment so will just have to come off of it.
