Experience

I’m fine taking this pill – caused no sickness nor have I had spotting or irregular periods that I had with taking Cerelle. But my god my breasts/nipples are so sore and heavy. Been taking this pill just over month and half so early days really. I’m contemplating coming off this pill In the next few weeks if the side effects of the breast pain don’t ease. I’ve put on weight usually size 12 ( I’m not pregnant). Period fine slightly heavier & longer than normal lasting 7 days but that’s fine. Main issue for me is the pain in my breasts.
