Experience

I have been on the pill since I was 24, I started on Yasmin to solve an acne issue. I have also been on Mercilon but was recommended to move to millinette due to my age (I am 45!). Whilst I still experience a few days of low mood just before the 7 days of pill break it is no more than I would feel if I wasn’t on the pill and usually I can resolve that feeling by doing more exercise. No weight gain, occasionally breasts get bigger just before pill break.
