Experience

I have only been using the mini pill for just under a month but have been experiencing moderate to heavy bleeding in between periods and breakouts in my skin. I have also experienced dramatic mood changes which is not like me at all. I feel low and angry a lot. I am not sure whether to continue taking the mini pill to see if it gets better but right now I am not happy on this pill.
