In comparison to the other combined pills I've used, this one caused less noticeable effects on my mood. It still went down, but not to full-on depression. The periods became quite irregular, coming after only two weeks and lasting a full 7 or 8 days, sometimes there was some spotting. On the last month my period disappeared completely and only returned when I stopped taking the pill. My breasts grew about 2 sizes, most of the time they were quite hard and painful. I gained about 5kg from my normal weight, despite none of my eating or workout habits changing, and it has gone down since I stopped the pill. Stopped taking it after 3 months as the side effects were not worth it, and will not use hormonal contraception in the future.
