Experience

This was my last option for birth control. I’m 29 & have tried 2 IUDs, 2 implants, Nuva ring, the shot, the patch, and several combination pills. I was hopeful. My periods stopped. I felt a little less crazy. Migraines weren’t as intense. My boobs were growing. UNTIL i started getting terrible acne and I realized the body hair. I felt like I was turning into a man. Dark long hairs around my nipples, on my chin, neck, and mustache. The most bizarre was my nose was starting to grow thick peach fuzz all over the top. Now I’m having to use hair removal creams and I’m so embarrassed. I stopping taking the pill 5 days ago. I’m hoping all these terrible side effect go away and I can just learn to track my fertile days and avoid sex on those days.

Experience after taking

I think it’s still too soon to tell. I’m hoping my acne gets better and hair growth slows down.
