Experience

Switched to this after being taken off Yasmine. Largely fine, didn’t cause acne (my main concern — skin stayed clear) but my goodness my STOMACH has been AWFUL. When I first started taking it, I was extremely nauseous (three beers had me up throwing up all night) and dizzy, which settled down, but my life for the last two months has just been me cycling between taking 3-4 immodium or having awful stomach cramps and diarrhoea. Stomach upset went away during my 7 day breaks, so confident the pill really irritated my stomach.
