My favourite combined pill so far! My periods used to be super heavy and around 11 days long, i’d vomit get fevers ect. I have tried rigevidon and yasmin but found that the higher progesterone affected my moods quite negatively. This one has higher oestrogen. My periods now last 4 days and I only get light cramps for a day! I go through the normal cycles of my boobs hurting the week before my period which I never had before. My mood feels a lot more stable on this pill too. My skin has always been clear and this pill hasn’t changed that. I do find that I have more headaches but I’m not sure if i’m just taking notice more.

I stuck with Brevinor for years as I found the side effects manageable until I started to have migraine with aura, then the doctor moved me to the mini pill. I was put on this form of combination pill to help with acne and it did improve my skin. My periods were light and mood changes were minimal. In the end, it was hard to source this pill as Pfizer turned their attention to the COVID-19 vaccinations, so stopped manufacturing this pill, which at the time, was a shame.

Gave me extreme PMDD. Very irritable and low moods and irrational thoughts. Would not recommend unless you are low in oestrogen before taking. Acne in the first 1-2 months of taking.

Very negative mood
