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.

I was put on this years ago for hormonal acne which it did wonders for. My sex drive and discharge was good on it too. I also felt great and sexy and confident for weeks 1 & 2 of a pill packet. HOWEVER, on week 3 it was almost like my body knew the pill break was coming and I had crippling anxiety and panic attacks to the point where I couldn’t get on the train to work that week. I would also get horrendous acid reflux partly due to anxiety. I was super irritable and paranoid, it was 100% PMDD. During week 4 (pill free week) I would cry uncontrollably including in front of guys I was dating and at work and in shops. I was also very depressed that week and would count down the days till I could start the pack again. My friends told me it wasn’t right or normal so as of the last month I’ve been on the Evra patch which is the same hormones and amount but I feel so much better, not getting those extreme highs and lows.

My periods were really heavy. I would lose so much blood in the first 2 days that I’d be really, really dizzy and weak. I had excruciating pelvic pain at least 2-3 (sometimes more) a week. I was taken to A&E a couple of times as I passed out due to pain. I thought this was normal… but then I stopped taking Brevinor after a couple of years. The pain reduced significantly. Still had pelvic pain with Cerazette (mini pill) but not as frequently. I’m not on any pills now and I feel so much better. No pelvic pain, no mood swings, no tears.
