I started taking contraceptive pills when I was 16. If I knew I had all these side effects I would never started. I tried to stop taking them a few times and my body has an awful reaction when I don't take the pills (such as more hair, massive acne, bad mood, depression, etc).

I started taking this medication after doing research into combined pills. I started birth control from pre-teen age and had bad experiences, especially related to low mood, anxiety and depressive symptoms (using cerzette and logynon). I wanted to find a pill which would not affect my mental health, but would improve my acne, lessen menstrual symptoms and be effective as a contraception. I came across Yaz, which was discontinued so requested this alternative from my GP. My doctor warned me about increased blood pressure, which I have experienced but I'm still in the normal range. I have gained weight on this pill, but I have also gone through the later stages of puberty while using this pill (so my body has changed anyway). I may have gained weight for other reasons, but I have noticed my appetite increase. Compared to other pills, the notable effects on mood were probably external environmental factors rather than due to the pill. I do experience anxiety anyway. After being on this pill for about 3 years, which included the coming out of lockdown phase, I would say my mental health is now stable and I'm still using this pill. In terms of sex drive, it has decreased slightly, but this could be due to being in a long-term relationship too/other environmental factors. My skin has significantly cleared. I choose to not take the break on this pill, which I did double check with a doctor about. I wouldn't do this without checking. I have experienced breakthrough bleeding as a result of this, but it stops if I take the pill consistently every day at exactly the same time. I have never been pregnant while on this pill and plan to stay on it. Overall, at 19, I feel I am very stable, mentally and in terms of menstruation. I would recommend it. I do advise trial and error as birth control effects everyone differently :)

My first year on this pill was great. Totally cleared up my acne which along with birth control was the main reason I seleted this pill. Then the second year I was hit with the most horrific migraines on a daily basis to the point I couldn't open my eyes plus constant constipation. I was told several times over the year that this wouldn't be connected to Eoline then eventually I had exhausted every other option so decided to stop it and see what happened. My acne came back worse than every for around 6 months however then cleared naturally and no more migraines or constipation issues at all! Only problem I have now is my period has never returned to normal (I have been off Eoline for 10 months so far). I had a completely normal cycle before starting Eoline but since stopping have only had 2 periods and a lot of irregular spotting, my GP has now advised I likely have post pill syndrome which there is no cure for. GPs really should advise people of ALL possible side effects from contraceptive pills not just the most common. I wouldn't recommend any hormonal contraception to anyone!
