Experience

Started microgynon and had to come off it within a week of use. Made me feel more ill than I have ever felt in my lifetime. Extreme nausea, panic attacks, hair fell out, crying, spots, headache and then my left leg began to get hot and swollen. I couldn’t even walk. Couldn’t get out of bed. Had to go to hospital and get checked for a blood clot. Had to immediately stop use. Awful pill
