Experience

I was put on this after having my Mirena Coil taken out (it’s did not agree with me at all) so I’m not too sure if my symptoms are to do with the coil coming out or going on the pill but I feel 1000x better. My periods have been a bit erratic however, sometimes they are heavy and short or light and long. Never heavy and long thank god. My boobs do get very sore and swollen just before my period and they have grown quite a bit (can’t complain there) I did stop taking the pill for 2 months and start again so this could be the reason and I’m hoping they will eventually settle down. All in all I’m pretty happy so far
