Experience

I enjoy not having any periods so that’s the perks of this pill for me although sometimes I get the pain of a period coming then it disappears after a day. The main problem is the pain in my breasts they just feel very heavy and tender which has started to radiate to my back and shoulders. Overall it’s been good for stopping periods but the pains are near unbearable.
