Comment:
I'm 24 years old. I was prescribed jolivette/errin because of my serious migraines. At least, almost 5 months after beginning the pill, I'm not pregnant. Though I have frequent pregnancy scares especially because of my now scarce periods. However, I have decided to come off the pill today because I am too fat for comfort.
