Experience

This is the best form of contraception I’ve ever used. You have a 3 hour window to take your pill each day so you have to be on the ball that’s the only downside. Had the least symptoms with this. I’ve tried cerelle (bled continuously, very low), few different combined pills such as cilest and and I suffered from thrush every time almost every other week and sex drive decreased/dry down below on these pills. Implant I bled all the time. Not tried the coil or injection but now I don’t need too :).
