Recommended by Gynae for suspected endo (severe bowel pain during period). Note: if you are over 14st one pill may not be strong enough. When I started with just 1 I bled constantly. So I agreed with my Dr and took two pills and this worked better for me. Pros: stopped period completely. Cons: no sex drive at all, loss of attraction to husband, detached, low mood, massive weight gain, depression, hair loss, itchy scalp. Just coming off it today as I feel like I’m at the mercy of fake hormones.

Only took this one for 3 months I think before my pharmacy swapped me to Cerazette. Was generally ok aside from the headaches and mood swings. Stopped my period, and didn't notice any weight change or acne or tenderness.

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.

I've had a really positive experience. My periods have stopped altogether and I don't get any ovulation or period pain.

This was the first contraceptive I started, I started it just before I moved away to university for the first time. I noticed a few weeks in I was a lot more anxious and emotional but I put it down to being away from home and all the new stresses. However as time went on my anxiety got so much worse, I’d have panic attacks in public which I found really embarrassing as I’d never experienced this before. My breasts became constantly painful and tender. I had a week of breakthrough bleeding which was not fun!! The worst thing for me was my acne which became the worst it’s ever been. I used to get a couple hormonal spots around my period before the pill but since I started it , my skin got very oily and I had very painful cystic acne, my confidence was so low and even wearing makeup would hurt my spots. I went to the doctors to see for alternatives and he gave me cerazette but from reading the reviews on that I have decided to take a break completely from contraceptives.

I’ve been on the for 14 years I’ve been put on so many different pills and taken off for different reason. But since being on this mini pill, I have taken myself off due to side effects, I wouldn’t recommend it for young people, I’m 26 years old and been with my partner for 7 years due to be married in 2 years. I was put on the pill at 14 due to my periods. Ever since the mini pill, the spots on my face has got out of hand, nothing I do gets rid of them, I use to have beautiful soft spot free skin, my breast are so sore and tender all the time, my mood swings are bad, my sex drive has gone which was never a problem before on any other pill. It’s painful during sex. I have lost so much head hair and it’s got so thin, and gets greasy really quickly which was never a problem before, I have had spots of bleeding randomly, but a year ago I had a heavy period that happened out the blue and it would stop and doctors had to give me tablets to try stop it. I feel depressed a lot but don’t know why which I don’t have a reason to be depressed. I would recommend it to any young person there is a reason my doctor said they don’t really give it to people under the age of 30 years old. I’ve been on many pills for 14 years but this one by far has really messed around with my body.

Avoid. Gave me lots of spots. Destroyed my sex drive and bleeding constantly and today I’ve decided to come off it ! Doctors recommended as used to have injection which made me gain weight and gave me headaches but was not as bad as this pill

It went mostly great, I wish I could have continued with it. For the good part: skin and rosacea improved as these previously would react to cyclical changes, my frequent migraines vanished when using this, I loved the pink packaging. For the not so great: I did get frequent spotting for weeks either every or every other month but it rarely hurt and when it did it quickly faded without needing painkillers, though when I did get a period it was prolonged and heavy and would not naturally stop by itself which was very scary. Unfortunately I was only this to stop my periods for endometriosis and it didn't work, not in 75mg nor 150mg, so unfortunately I have to change to something else.

Have been taking for a month at the moment - previously took a few years ago and had no real issues. Periods have stopped for now which is brilliant as i suffer from heavy irregular painful periods. Nausea started a few days into taking but starting to back off now. A few headaches but nothing terrible. Vaginal dryness is quite noticeable. and period like cramping but no bleeding. Boobs have got bigger and are rock solid and tender.

I have never had anxiety before in my life, 3 months into taking this mini-pill I was worried constantly. At first I didn't link taking the pill to how I was feeling and thought it was just something I was going through, however, it got so bad that I decided to change pills to see if it helped at all - overnight, I was feeling less worried, less shaky, less like the world was coming to an end! There was slight weight gain and my periods were heavier, but it was the anxiety that really got me.

Don’t keep it on the DL.Put it on the LD.
