Experience

For the first 3 years I had no periods at all. Just lots of acne. Out of the blue I started getting a bleed every other week. Not heavy but caused cramps. Mood got progressively worse whilst on this pill. Finally stopped taking it after putting up with the bleeding multiple times a month.
