Experience

I’ve had acne for most of my teenage/adult life before going on this pill, and expected it to get worse but surprisingly this pill has had little affect on my skin. I still get acne but I’ve always had it so there’s no real change there. I experienced tender breasts at first but that went away after the first 3 months. The biggest affect its has is on my sex drive, which is much lower than it once was, but gotten higher the longer I’ve been on this pill. Other than that I’ve had very little side affects.
