Experience

I loved being on this pill, unfortunately I stopped being able to get this in the UK and I developed a problem with headaches (unrelated to being on a pill as I came off all contraception and the issue persisted). So I have been switched to the progestogen only pill now. Really loved Norimin, felt my mood swings weren’t bad and if anything I lost weight/didn’t put weight on. But this could have been because of other factors.
