Experience

I loved this pill but I ended up getting migraines with aura on two occasions and advised to stop. No vaginal dryness and had no problems with pain during sex. I didn’t notice a change in my mood or my sex drive. I am just so sad that I had to stop due to the migraines.

Experience after taking

I changed from the combined pill straight onto the progesterone only pill so I cannot say for certain whether the negative symptoms I have experienced are due to stopping the combined pill or starting the progesterone only pill.

Had a similar experience?
