Experience

Was encouraged to try this pill as I had a history (only one) of migraines. After three months of it really not suiting me, I asked my doctor if I could change. They didn’t encourage it as they thought I should wait till month 6. I wish I had pushed to change as my mood, emotions, periods were just all over the place. Pills are different for everyone but I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone. If you feel as though your contraceptive isn’t suiting you, tell your doctor and push to change. You know your body best

Experience after taking

my mood is so much lighter, Im a happier person, I don’t feel myself loosing control. I moved straight to the coil, and am having my first period now. This feels a lot lighter, cramps aren’t as bad, and mood is great comparatively
