Experience

Lucette 0.03 is the same as Yasmin, NHS have changed it to Lucette brand. Have been on this for nearly 3 years and have NO side effects, for example headaches. The only downside is the dryness of down there but can live with that. I have been diagnosed with PCOS and was given this medicine. It helps with hair (hiritusim?), psoriasis, less of a sex drive (had a high drive before going on this which has helped calm me down a bit) and having lighter periods. I was using the pill before I went onto Lucette and was put on 30 and 20mg before. Can’t remember their names but they gave me severe headaches like I was hungry/dehydrated all the time. If you have PCOS, this is the pill I would highly recommend (lucette/Yasmin) or Dianette.
