Experience

Since being on the combined pill I was put onto Desorex because of blood clots. Since being on this pill I’ve had nothing but bad effects, my skin has never been this bad in my life. Even to the point where people are physically pointing out that my spots are getting bad. My periods are now very irregular which makes it a complete guessing game. Mentally I feel very down and drained and pessimistic, my mood has been swinging in roundabouts since being on it.
