Experience

After being on combined pill for years, suddenly doctors put two and two together and realised my type of migraine wasn’t safe with the combined pill so changed me over. Best thing they ever did. Constant bleeding for a month or so when I started, after that spotting every 5 months or so: no periods! My acne cleared up and I was generally in a better mood! Only changed because they don’t do this pill in Australia: still trying to find a good alternative 2 years later!!

Experience after taking

I went straight onto another pill, so I can only assume any side effects were that of the new pill not from stopping taking these.

Had a similar experience?
