Experience

Thought the first 3 moths on this pill I had a lot of spotting and very irregular periods, but after been on the pill for 6 months now my periods have become more regular now get longer breaks between before next period. At the start on going on the pill had really bad headaches and dizzy ness but I think my body was adjusting as it was my first time on any pill , but still get slight migraine here and there but not as bad as when started on this pill. My weight hasn’t changed was 9st when started and 9st 6 months on this pill. My family said they couldn’t tell if had much mood change so must be on change.
