In terms of being a contraceptive, it definitely does the job if you take it properly. The first couple of months I experienced little side effects if any, but then afterwards I always had horrible mood swings during my break week, and during the days of taking the pill I often felt not myself, irritable and tearful for no reason. It increased my anxiety a lot and I felt down a lot of the time. I took the pill packs back-to-back occasionally (without a break week) but still had breakthrough bleeding, which would last more than a week. Overall not a positive experience, and it is worthy to note this pill is often the first one prescribed when you decide to go on the pill because it is a cheaper one to roll out. I recommend doing some research first and requesting one that sounds like it would suit you best.
