I started out on the combined pill cilest about 7 - 8 years ago for acne. I was then changed during covid to cilique due to cilest no longer being available and was told it was exactly the same ingredients? I’ve been on the pill for my whole adolescence/ early adulthood so I don’t know what my sex drive was like prior to the pill and I struggle to remember what my mood was like prior. I have endometriosis and have been advised to have the coil or stay on the pill. This pill helps me limit the amount of periods I have a year I take 2 packets then a 4 day break continuously. My breakthrough bleeds and still heavy and very painful due to my endometriosis but I dread to think what they would be like without the pill. I do suffer with a lot of headaches, breast tenderness and random cramping pains (however this could be endometriosis). I do often experience episodes of extreme anxiety/ low mood when I am at the end of the second pill packet and it lasts around a week and happens at the same time each 2 monthly cycle. The pill has also improved my acne as this was terrible prior to the pill. Overall, I’m happy with this pill as it outweighs the effects of endometriosis without the pill however if I didn’t have endometriosis I would look at coming off contraception.

I was originally on depo for 3 years came off as I was on this for quite a long time (recommended 2 years only) I was getting bad acne from the jab so I was put on this pill. Took my body to adjust awhile my acne cleared up super quick, had sore boobs and headaches, but these disappeared 3 months. HOWEVER this pill kept giving me chronic UTIs I was in so much pain where i could not walk. I didn't think it was the pill but it was I looked in the symptom leaflet and 1 in 10 get urine infections. I changed pill and they have gone away.
