Experience

Was switched from Ovranette (combined pill) to this, and at first had continual spotting for two weeks. Waited a bit for this to settle down and now five months in, my periods have stopped altogether. Definitely suffered vaginal dryness as an effect of this pill but it settled after three months, so definitely stick with it if you’re worried about that. Definitely more sensitive and emotional now, but it’s nothing I can’t handle. Would rather be on this more low risk pill than the combined pill that threatened my health.
