Experience

Only been taking this pill for 2 months but already im done with it. Bleeding almost constantly. 2-3 days break then 8-9 days blood loss. No wonder it’s birth control, i don’t get chance to do anything! Mood is low, including irritable and angry. Im having the coil fitted in a week to see if that’s any better. Hate this pill with a passion.
