Experience

I gained weight on the first pill I was on so my doctor put me on this pill, I gains even more weight, then making my Ed worst and my moods are all over the place, completely lost my sex drive and I’m sososo spotty, I’ve never had acne, just one stop here and there but with this pill I’ve got spots on my face, back and chest. The only good thing of this pill is that it stoped my periods
