Experience

I was on this pill for 6 months (aged 17) to make my periods lighter and my mood was very low. I had never really had problems with depression before but two hours after I’d taken Microgynon, I would cry and have suicidal thoughts. It was absolutely awful. It did make my periods lighter but it was affecting my mood so negatively, I would never take it again.
