The progestogen-only pill is a fantastic choice for women who have medical problems that mean they can't use oestrogen. It's easy to use as a once daily pill and can be used right up until the age of 55.

Norgeston pill  

I would bleed for 4-6 days every 14 days with cramps the whole “period”. I seemed to feel every emotion much more intensely and felt rather negative a lot more than usual. I was also very bloated a lot.

Norgeston pill  

I was on Cerelle for 6 mths which was not working out for me as I had prolonged, frequent irregular periods on it. The doctor suggested changing to Norgeston and it has been great. I have been on it now for 5 months and my periods, although not regular (actually there has been a slightly longer gap between periods, which is nice) have been back to normal length of around 6 days long. In fact better than normal as I’d been getting very heavy periods possibly due to me being perimenopausal. I’ve got lighter periods now that don’t come as often with no bad side effects. Also, a good side effect is that I don’t get feelings of depresssion any more before my period like I used to when not on the pill. I did have a blip recently with bleeding - but it’s because I missed a pill and I bled for 20 days, so I asked my doctor and they told me to take 2 pills a day until the bleeding had stopped for 7 days and this has worked. I recommend this pill!

Norgeston pill  

This hormone made me suicidal. I was trialling it for 3 months as I intended to get the mirena coil but wanted to see how I reacted to the specific hormone before I had it more permanently in my system. All day every day all I could think about was killing myself. I felt miserable and severely depressed. I started getting spots on my face and chest, one of my breasts is still slightly larger than the other since taking and stopping this medication (past them being sisters not twins level of different). The low mood wasn't noticeable to me until I'd run out of the 3 months script and couldn't get any more for a while. Within days I felt miles better. My period had been stopped already by my cerazette usage, and it didn't return while I was taking Norgeston. Absolutely I would recommend trying Norgeston before committing to the Mirena coil, if I hadn't I'm not entirely sure I'd still be here!

Norgeston pill  

I can’t describe how happy I am to have found this pill after being put on about 5 different combined pills, both types of coil and the implant and having horrendous side effects. The only side effects I’ve had with this was a little spotting when first starting, and now I have normal regular periods. My skin, mood, tiredness etc has not changed at all. This has the same hormones as the kyleena implant so maybe avoid if you’ve tried that and didn’t get on with it. Couldn’t recommend this pill enough if you’ve tried multiple methods and none of them seem to be working for you!

I completely lose my sex drive when taking the pill. The vaginal dryness isn't as bad with the mini-pill as it is with the combined for me. I started experiencing muscle twitches on this pill which I personally feel are linked so have stopped taking it.

Norgeston pill  

After being off this pill for 6 months I have seen an enormous improvement in my mood, weight and overall well-being. I gained 9kg on this pill! I’ve been the same weight for a very long time, so to gain 9kg in a few months seemed odd but it was shrugged off as an ‘age thing’ as I’m approaching 30. Yet as soon as I came off this pill I lost the weight. I in part put this down to the extreme bloating I experienced on this pill. Insane levels of water retention stopped me from being able to wear any of my clothes. Not to mention the constipation! This had a serious impact on my well-being, self image and consequently my sex drive. Retrospect is a wonderful thing. Just wish I’d tried coming off it sooner!

Norgeston pill  

I started taking this pill around 9 months ago after switching from another progesterone only pill (cerelle). The reason I switched was because the pat pill gave me a period every two weeks. When I first started taking Norgeston this issue completely cleared up, however, has now come back in the last two months. Aside from this I have also been noticing in the last few months I have been getting extremely low moods as well as very painful headaches so I’m thinking of switching to the combined pill

Norgeston pill  

After randomly having issues with the copper coil (after 5 successful years) and reluctantly having to go back on hormonal contraception I was dreading it but this pill is far better than any other mini-pills I've tried. I was able to compare the effects to my hormone-free self thanks to my time with the coil and in comparison to earlier pills/minipills in my late teens, I honestly feel like the side effects are far less. The main side effects that make me consider coming off it are increased in thrush outbreaks, cold sore outbreaks (both were very rare for me before I went on this pill) and low mood/angry moods. The main side effect I don't mind but encounter a lot is nausea. It's in comparison to other pills I've tried (A LOT) that I'm willing to accept the above side effects. I'll take a bit of low mood over whole-body acne, sky high blood pressure and heart conditions any day! (For context I'm not allowed on the combined pill again after I had blackouts and ended up with a heart condition after being on Cilest so my options are very limited. The copper IUD gave me a great 5 years but refuses to stay in place now (3 failed attempts with a new coil and not sure I can handle another) so it seems the mini pill is my only option!)

Norgeston pill  

It's not been terrible but I'm really not a fan of this pill. I'm on the pill for my endometriosis (to stop my periods) but I can't use the combined pill due to migraines. I've still had periods on this pill - they've been very regular though, with 26 day cycles. My skin has been really bad. It's been very oily with more acne which has been on my back/shoulders/upper arms/chest as well as my face. I've also gained weight quite quickly which has resulted in a lot of stretch marks. I've completely lost my sex drive. I get a lot of pain around ovulation and in the week before my period, as well as my period.

Great service. The process is straightforward and even if you don't know what you want/need there's a handy questionnaire available and if further support is needed there is the option to book an appointment with a clinician. Prices are fair and depend on the brand and length of subscription. Also the process of cancelling the subscription is very straightforward and transparent. Thanks.

🎉😍 Quickest delivery ever and so easy to use. I won’t go into detail but let’s just say I was bloody delighted to not have to go into the intimate detail of my sex life with my GP to get the actual pill I know works for me rather than the generic version they keep trying to push!

I saw your online prescription service and placed my first order this weekend. I love the convenience and want to support a business which has taught me something new about a pill I’ve been taking for 15 years! Knowledge is power and The Lowdown are empowering people to make more informed choices than previously possible.

Just placed my order for Levest and I wanted to thank you for making life so much easier! Working full time and being a lone parent can take over so thank you, thank you for creating such a fantastic, easy and fast service! You have really helped with the anxiety of securing contraception.

I think this is the type of company the UK has needed for a long time. Making contraception easy and seamless to get is a huge advancement on what we’ve had before. I currently live in the UAE where you can buy contraception over the counter and have always been shocked by how easy it was here in comparison to the UK.

Time, efficiency and discretion are the three factors why I purchase my contraceptives online - especially during the pandemic when it was almost impossible to book GP appointments.

Christy

I wanted to say thank you for creating an easy to use platform for contraception. I have been on the pill on and off for almost 20 years and have had so many issues getting the one that works for me, dealing with Dr's who spoke to my husband (as if I wasn't in the room) about how I might be better on an implant, trying to get the coil and being told it just won't fit etc.

Anna

I order with yourselves because I felt like my opinions and queries were not being heard by my doctors surgery, when I found out about The Lowdown and that it was a service passionate about finding the right contraceptives for the individual, speaking to doctor fran I finally felt heard and my feelings validated, so I'd rather pay for your services from a company that actually cares than go back to my doctors surgery where I didn't feel heard.
