Experience

The best part about this pill is that it completely stopped my periods, which were heavy and seemed to be really long. I don’t really know if it’s changed my mood much, but I do get headaches, and my sex drive has decreased a bit. So happy not to have horrible periods anymore so the other parts don’t matter to me.
