Experience

I was given Noriday after I started having migraines with aura so was told I couldn’t have the combined pill anymore. I was worried because I’d had a terrible experience with Desogestrel where I bled continuously for months and when I started taking Noriday I started bleeding again. However I had a break for 3 months and tried again and it is so much better. I feel totally normal and don’t get PMS as bad. My periods are more irregular and I get spotting in between periods, but it’s only a little bit and is so much better than with Desogestrel.
