Experience

I have been on Zelleata/Desogestal for just over a year now. I was previously on Micogyron for about 8 years then I started to get migraines with aura so the GP changed me to the mini pil. This stopped my periods straight away which I never really liked because I couldn’t tell if I was pregnant or not , and I haven’t had a period at all in over year until today where I’ve had the start of one today and the symtoms leading up the last week. I don’t know if it’s normal to just randomly have a period just like that after a year?
