Experience

I was pleased that I didn’t gain so much weight, it made me have cravings for dirty carbs like crisp, chips and white bread but I used every ounce of will power I had to stop myself as I knew it was because of the pill that I wanted to eat more so I potentially could have easily gained weight. It also made me very bloated too but that subsided when I did some exercise. As expected with any hormone based pill, my sex drive promptly left the chat – no surprise there. The reason I have stopped taking this pill is because of the constant spotting and unwanted vaginal discharge. I’m very regular but now I don’t know if I’m on my period or not. I always have to wear panty liners or pads because something randomly comes out. And tbh I don’t know what day of my cycle I’m on and for a regular person like me, that is very confusing. I’m waiting for my body to clear out and start again.
