Experience

I came to this pill as I can no longer have estrogen (I get severe focal migraines that aren’t related to this contraceptive pill directly) I gained no weight, my moods and period symptoms are now directly related to my monthly cycle- which hasn’t been the case with previous contraception! Overall very happy with this pill, I experience very little negative side effects from it compared to other contraceptives I have tried :)
