Experience

I have been taking this pill for around 1 year having previously taken Gedarel 20/150 which caused me to bleed everyday. Taking the 30/150 version did give me some mood swings initially but these died down and I suffered from no noticeable side effects until around month 7/8 when I started to suffer from breakthrough bleeding every month like clockwork, 5 days before I was due to finish the pack. The bleeding starts and then stops and then starts again when I have my withdrawal bleed. It’s annoying but it is not as bad as other side effects that hormones can cause.
