I completely lose my sex drive when taking the pill. The vaginal dryness isn't as bad with the mini-pill as it is with the combined for me. I started experiencing muscle twitches on this pill which I personally feel are linked so have stopped taking it.

Overall, being on this contraceptive my experience was fine aside from hair loss. I had no other side effects I could associate with the pill other than the hair loss which was distressing. Coming off of this pill was a NIGHTMARE though. After having been on it for 10 years I believe it has messed up my body’s ability to naturally regulate my hormones. The first 6 months off I experienced severe anxiety, heart palpitations, panic attacks, leg tremors, night sweats, heavy flow, and cramps all throughout my cycle. I’m now over a year off and still experiencing these side effects though they are less severe
