Took Blisovi 1/20 (not listed here) for ~13 months with a 2 month break. Since starting it again, I have had no period for 5 months nor withdrawal bleeding whatsoever, and have completely lost my period (secondary ammenorhea) without any real concerns from the doctor. Completely protected me from pregnancy while I took it. I am now off of the pill waiting for my period to return.

I went on Yasmin to try and control my prolonged periods. I committed to giving it 3 months but could not tolerate it any longer. Although the prolonged periods stopped, I got breakthrough bleeding / spotting every month. I also had extremely bad head aches for weeks at a time and felt really low. I had a few major dizzy spells where I’d completely lose my balance too which I can’t say for sure was the pill, but the other side effects definitely were. I even at times had intense increased urination where I would need to go for a wee every ten minutes (no exaggeration). I really wanted this pill to work after hearing good things about it and if I could’ve given it longer to settle I would’ve but I couldn’t tolerate the side effects any more.

This pill was prescribed to me to help with PMDD symptoms. After a week it caused me to begin having extremely severe panic attacks during which I couldn’t breathe and experienced worrying limb numbness. I didn’t sleep for a week and stopped taking it straight away. Worst experience of my life!
