Experience

I have been using a form of pill for over 10 years, this one being the mini pill I prefer due to having no periods, i used to get terrible cramps when I was younger and I don’t get them at all now. I don’t seem to get any side effects, but then I’ve been on it so long and I do get a fair few headaches which I wouldn’t know if it’s the pill causing them. I’ve not tried other methods as this works for me, my concern now is eventually coming off it in future if I want to get pregnant, having been on it for so long and if that has had any affects on my body.
