I've decided to stop taking the pill.
I can't deal with the sodding side effects anymore. I haven't gotten many from it, but the ones that have come about are bad enough to make me want to chuck the rest of the pack down the rubbish shute.
My moods haven't changed very much at all - although I do tend to want to cry a bit more than usual even though I feel alright - I constantly feel hungry and it gets to the point of feeling as if I'm going to be sick if I don't eat something, my boobs have gotten bigger (damn) and I'm getting VERY painful cramps. It feels like I'm on when I'm only mid-cycle. Naff period pains without the period. I was just coping with them at first in the hope that they were just one of those settling in problems that would eventually go away, but they've just been getting worse. I end up taking full whack of my painkillers just to try and ease it all up a little bit...I really don't want to have to do that anymore. I can't stand having to take tablets, especially the amount I seem to have to get through at the moment.
I'm making an appointment at my clinic early next week to discuss it with them and let them do my health check thingy.
It's a shame because I don't have many other options now really *sigh*
