Experience

I have struggled to find contraception that works for me for years but I think this is the one! Miraculously, after being worried about it making my acne worse, it actually cleared up my acne, which had been continuous for 3 years, in one week! It turns out that low progesterone was causing my acne. When I first started taking it I experienced bad indigestion/ heartburn/ acid reflux and nearly stopped, but I then discovered that I have low stomach acid and the pill triggered symptoms but wasn’t the cause so have taken measures to increase my stomach acid and am feeling much better. I’ve had one migraine and a couple of headaches but I’m assuming this will settle down as I’m not even a month in yet.
