Experience

In terms of reliability, it’s a great pill. However, I’m sick of having pregnancy like symptoms on it such as the munchies, crying at everything (my boyfriend got me a Harry Potter book and I cried like I had just won the lottery), breast tenderness and a lot more. It makes me so paranoid that I am pregnant. But. The pill is so affective that I would gladly take the bad for reliability.
