Experience

I had a real issue with my hormones on this pill. I thought I was going mad at times because I just couldn’t control my emotions at all. I was irrational, volatile, weepy, depressed the list goes on. It wasn’t until I was discussing it with a friend that she asked if I was on Microgynon, and told me to get my GP to take me straight off it.

Experience after taking

I was moved onto Cilest and it made a huge difference to me. I could feel my mood changing within days of coming off Microgynon.
