Experience

I was swapped to this pill from microgynon 30 as I was told it was a cheaper version of the same thing. It can’t have been the same, I had no side effects with microgynon 30 but as soon as I started this pill I felt very depressed. I stayed on it because I thought I might just be a teenager thing (I was 17-18 while taking it) but as soon as I decided to stop taking it I felt like myself again and didn’t realise how depressed I really was until I came off it. Other than that I had no major issues, it helped calm down my super heavy periods and didn’t cause bad acne or weight gain.
