Experience

I took microgynon for just over 4 years. I was happy that it made my periods more regular and lighter and my cramps less painful. I liked being able to decide whether to have my period or take the packs back to back so I didn’t have a period. However, I started to get migraines (without aura) after 4 years and as I had no other health issues at that time which could cause them, I was moved to Femodette.

Experience after taking

I moved to a different combined pill so I don’t know what the side effects or symptoms were when coming off microgynon as I didn’t have a break.
