Experience

This was the first contraception i tried and I’ve been so lucky that it’s worked for me for 4 years now. My skin has always been acne prone but microgynon has helped it very slightly. I have PCOS and taking the pill has regulated my periods which were irregular before. My periods are lighter and the pain has definitely decreased, I used to have massively heavy periods and such bad cramps and pains but now I don’t which is brilliant. I had bleeding during sex during my first 3-4 months of taking the pill but this stopped and was checked over at the doctors. No spotting after this and periods only come when I stop taking the pill which is useful for when I want to delay. Overall I’m happy with it and wouldn’t change unless something happened
