Experience

Had a tough time with other pills, this has definitely been a saviour. I found the combined pill better however had to be taken off for other medical conditions. This has been the most effective minipill I’ve been prescribed with the minimal side effects apart from increased acne and migraines being the most problematic. Also it is important to note that I have migraines regularly and have done when off the pill. I am also prescribed a low dosage anti depressant to help with my migraines which initially helped however this pill has caused the symptoms to worsen again!
