Experience

Like other reviewers I was switched from Yasmin to Lucette and assured it was the same. I thought that my side affects could be due to being on this pill for so long however it sounds like Lucette may just be the problem. I now struggle with my sex drive to the point it’s affecting my partner, I feel completely numb at times and I experience terrible dryness too. This affects my mental well-being and I also have very negative mood cycles where I feel lower than low. I am going to try and find an alternative type of contraception.
