Levest pill - Combined Pill

It was OK (was on it for 4 years with 2 6 month breaks) but I definitely gained weight and experienced PMS emotional symptoms when I didn’t before. Also caused my vagina to get considerably drier. I had tender breasts for at least 2, sometimes 3 weeks of the month which was very annoying, but they did get a little bigger too. No other side effects than that, I think I didn’t try any alternatives because I didn’t know the difference. The long crossover period after missing it was what attracted me as I have forgotten a couple of times.

Experience coming off Levest pill

Coming off it gave me acne for 6 months! I lost weight too but I was also exercising a lot more so it could have been that. My moods were also less stable after coming off it but no more sore boobs! Vaginal dryness also went away for the most part.
