Experience

The longer I have been on this pill the worse it has got. Started off great – light painless periods, as time has gone on now get very irregular periods, shorter cycles, painful sometimes and sometimes not. Probably have 2 weeks in a month that I don’t bleed for. Will have 2 weeks off then 1 week then 3. Also experienced bad anxiety whenever bleeding is about to happen.
