Experience

Felt like a good experience at the time – changed to this progesterone only pill after having migraines on a combined pill. Was pleased not to gain weight or have acne or huge mood swings like I have on previous pills. Period bleeding stopped but noticed changes in discharge and mood monthly so I’m hopeful that a regular cycle continued.

Experience after taking

Only realised how suppressed my sex drive when I came off this pill and got some libido back! Had sore nipples about a week after which I’ve never experienced before.

Had a similar experience?
