Hi all, I just wanted to share my experience of taking this BC pill, so I have been taking it now for 5 + years without any pregnancies or issues. Over time my periods have become lighter to just spotting and I was happy about this. My past year experience is different and I know believe it is down to the pill. (Age 34) Symptoms I have been suffering with: Excessive hair loss Increase of facial hair Water retention No periods at all since February Join issues Softening breast tissue Weight gain I am currently seeing a doctor at the moment and due to go in and have a load of tests to make sure there isn’t anything underlined going on, but having read some of the reports from people who have stopped it I too have now started to suffer symptoms. I would like to know if anyone else has had the above symptoms from the pill and any thoughts really.
