Experience

Only progestogen based contraception I’ve been able to tolerate. Allll others (pills, jab, implant, coil) made me bleed irregularly and made me moody. This one has been fine, over a year in use and though periods were a little less regular, they were about on time. I did start getting some extra bleeding around 9-12 months after starting it, but I think my body is just weird. I did still ovulate while taking, but it still prevented pregnancy. Did gain some weight but could have been a result of lockdown and inactivity rather than the pill. Did have some stomach issues, but was diagnosed with ins a long time ago, which has been okay for years now, so possibly related. Was getting a bit moody here and there, again, maybe not related to the pill. Overall I was satisfied with the experience, unlike the others I’ve tried. Stopped taking due to getting sterilised instead.
