So far I love Eloine. I take it in the evening which stops me getting nausea. First week I had a bit of nausea and spotting but giving it time to settle, it stopped. My rosacea came back mildly, but it’s worth it as I love this pill so much and I can deal with skin issues easier than mood issues. So glad I tried this one. I hated all other combo pills.

After having tried the copper coil, which really did not work for me due to constant spotting, I switched to the pill. Having been on the pill before, I was looking for a contraceptive that would also help with clear skin and not cause hair loss, similar to Dianette or Yasmin. I tried returning onto Yasmin but had too many side effects. Due to my age, doctors were reluctant to put me on the combined pill, but I was concerned the mini-pill would not have the same benefits as the combined pill. Eventually, a senior doctor advised I try Eloine, which is similar in benefits but still lower dose than Yasmin. I had some side effects initially and felt the effect on my mood, but after 3 months, I barely have any side effects, clear skin and no additional hair loss.

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 :)
