Norgeston pill - Prog-only Pill

This pill is the DEVIL. I’ve tried many pills and this is the absolute worst. It starts off fine but somehow worsens the longer you are taking it?? Awful headaches, bleeding heavy enough to be using more than 3 sanitary towels per hour which lasts weeks. I was bleeding the majority of each month. The cramps were unbearable. Painful acne, THRUSH (which I never usually get), and caused me to have depression the worst I’ve ever experienced. As soon as I stopped taking, every symptom disappeared. I know everyone has different experiences on each contraceptive, but a pill that has the potential to cause all of this can’t be good for anyone. Please avoid for your own health.
