Experience

The only complaint I would have about this pill was that I continued to have heavy periods. However as they were like clockwork they were manageable. I got on brilliantly from day 1 and never had any breakthrough bleeding including when I took 2 packs in a row (to avoid having a period on holiday). I was on the combined pill for 30 years and only changed to the mini pill as advised to by my doctor due to my age.

Experience after taking

Hard to say if after effects were withdrawal from combined pill or side effects from mini pill as I changed straight over
