Experience

This is my first time on any contraception and I’ve little to no bad experiences with it. I’d say my worst symptom is actually constipation which has changed my previously regular bowel movements. My period has completed stopped apart from a light spotting I had after sex. I’m not sure whether the pill caused this as I had just had a medical abortion a couple of days before I started on the pill.
