Experience

This pill helped me live a normal life by stopping my painful periods that occured every couple of weeks however, the 2 periods I did have while using the pill were the worst I have ever experienced. I was extremely nauseous with unbearable cramps and massive blood clots. Since this, it is suspected I have endometriosis and the oestrogen was not suitable for me. I have been put on a progesterone only pill and am yet to see any side effects or pain.

Experience after taking

I went straight from one pill to the next so my experiences coming off the pill are not accurate nor are they particularly useful.

Had a similar experience?
