Gedarel 20/150 pill - Combined Pill

I started taking this contraceptive to reduce my period pain and improve acne, but after three months, there were no changes that I could notice with either of these. However, I found myself much more irritable during the second half of the pill cycle than I was before I started taking it. I also had increased cramping before the bleeding started, a general flatter mood and headaches and nausea that I never usually experienced before. My body shape has also changed and have put on a bit of weight but I'm not sure if this is linked.
