Experience

This was the first pill I was put on by my GP, which I think is quite common in the UK. I used it for just over a year before switching – it was my favourite for positive side effects, as it really improved my heavy periods. I chose to switch ultimately because I felt my sex drive was being effected. It’s also worth thinking about the fact, if blood clots run in your family, that combined pills can increase your risk.
