Experience

I have had to use this method of contraception because I have had multiple problems with the IUD; mostly to do with explusion. The one good thing about being on the Pill is that I can stop taking it any time. This is the only pill that agrees with me. Another downside to taking this pill is that I have gained so much weight!
