Experience

Every time i take this medication I get headaches and unbearable nausea around 3-4 hours later. every day. this goes on for 2/3rds if not all of the pill cycle, every cycle. i haven’t seen anyone else state nausea but it’s bad for me. i take the pill at 12 pm and it’s so hard to make or eat dinner, even thinking about food annoys me. this definitely makes me more agitated along with the headaches. the only reason i’m taking is because i have a three month prescription to try stabilise by periods after my IUD implant made me have unpredictable periods lasting 1-3 months at a time. i’m on third pill cycle now and can’t WAIT to finish it completely and never touch it again. this exact situation happened to me with my previous IUD but they gave me a different combined pill to stabilise periods and it never became a problem. luckily i don’t have a job right now as working with this constant nausea would be awful.
