Experience

After 1 more pop pill and 2 or 3 different combined pills this one was the best for me i think. I do have very few migraines (as my mom and gran do) but seems that I’ve lost all of headaches that I had with my previous pill. Slightly different period schedule with i don’t like (was really on time, 24 days every month, now late up to 4 days or my normal). Had problem with acne on my chest (never suffered with them before), after strong acne cleaning gel cream from my gp they disappeared within days. Also don’t think I had any down there infections but sometimes I feel like in need a toilet more often. Apart from all 3 things i don’t think it’s that bad.
