Experience

I moved to the mini pill after being on the combined pill for 2 years and whilst I still experience weight-gain and a lower sex-drive along with other symptoms such as headaches it is so much less on this mini pill so if oral contraception is your choice I would recommend the mini pill over the combined pill any day.
