Helped me regulate my periods but was worse for everything else. My mood was dismal so it was very effective as contraception as I never wanted to have sex.
Not that bad in comparison to getting pregnant
Good pill. One of the few pop pills that do agree with me. I’ve noticed some weight gain since switching from Yasmin. Generally very good. Would recommend for those having to swap from combined to mini pill.
The first two Nexplanon implants I had were great. No periods, no pregnancy, no serious side effects. However, they were reformulated before I got my third one and it gave me increased anxiety and random crying spells and low mood which resolved after it was removed.
I follow taking charge of your fertility rules, track using Kindara app. I love no hormonal side effects, found it easy to detect ovulation and I’m enjoying learning about how my body works. We use condoms when I’m fertile which is around a week per cycle which has been totally fine and much better than I expected (having been on the pill for years!)
Great that there is no side effects BUT, the app wasn’t able to detect ovulation for me because the difference between my follicular (pre ovulation) and luteal (post) is only slight. Following another FAM method where I chart myself I can clearly see ovulation and it fits within rules of other FAM methods but natural cycles just seems inflexible and doesn’t recognise it, therefore I only got a few green days whilst on my period. Perhaps if j persisted it would get better but I found using a charting method of FAM (I use Taking Charge of Your Fertility rules and use the app Kindara) much more effective!
