I was prescribed this pill as I struggled to gain weight therefore, I didn’t have a regular period. I never had any awful experiences with this pill other than after 3 years I started to experience reoccurring thrush. Once it was treated it usually went away until recently, I have been experiencing thrush almost every month always during the week before my break. It has become unbearable leading me to change to a different lower dose birth control instead.

switched from levest because of my skin, i think it’s cleared up my skin a bit (i have a better skincare routine now tho so could be that too), but ive been spotting quite a bit in the last few months. periods have gotten less painful which is good! boobs also got bigger ;) sex drive went down a bit, moods have always been all over the place tbh LOL
