birth control questions!!

okay so i finally convinced my mom to let me go to the gyno! i’m so excited bc my periods are HELL and i’m ready to fix them up a little. and i’m tryna clear up my skin but i have some questions. if you’re on birth control, how is it for you? do you love it? hate it? what are your side effects? do you think it’s worth it? and anything else you think i should know about it?
