Experience

Unfortunately I was taken off the combined pill because I suffer from regular migraines. Cerazette was the first try and that was disastrous so I was prescribed Norgeston as a second option. Have been on it for almost 6 months now but I am changing again. My skin was ‘ok-ish’, with some breakouts but manageable ones and mostly before and during periods so I had some time of normal healthy looking skin. My periods however have intensified which is why I’m changing pill again. On Norgeston I’m bleeding every 15 to 18 days and they are regular to heavy periods and I notice more cramping and lower back pain. I was hoping that was only for the first couple of months but it continued so I’m taking my last pill tonight and moving on to Noriday. Lucky number 3???? fingers crossed!
