Experience

Has improved my skin a lot and when I once came off it my skin went wild and took me 3 months to get on top of. Breasts are sore half of the time and definitely bigger. My periods are generally on time but light, sometimes I have a random 40+ day cycle. I have gained a lot of weight (approx 5kg) and despite working out 5 days a week and eating well it doesn’t budge. I struggle with migraines and high blood pressure so can’t take the combined pill. It could be better but don’t have any other options.
