Experience

I get quite anxious about starting new medication because I worry about the side effects, but I had a pretty easy time with this pill. I used to get quite intense PMS a few days – a week before my period and this honestly stopped that. I was incredibly regular, and slightly lighter. The only negative side I had was increased sweating, but totally manageable and nowhere the horror show of side effects I was worried about. One year in, I had a silent migraine – this is the visual aura symptom of a migraine but the headache doesn’t follow – so I had to come off it and switch to mini pill. I had actually had these types of migraine in the past and even though I did tell my GP that, they still put me on this pill, which I now discover they shouldn’t have done because it ups your risk of stroke too much – definitely something to be aware of.
