Since starting this contraceptive I've experience lumpier swollen breasts which has made me slightly nervous, although in general it's a sure contraceptive method and has been I think better for my moods. I've now been refferred to get a breast scan in a few weeks for a lump that's only v recently developed and been looked into because of the severe tenderness, constant sore feeling on my boobs.

Not perfect, but I have not noticed an impact on my mental health which was the most important factor for me. Some break through bleeding and bloating if I take it back to back for a few months, but once I take a 7 day break and have a bleed that goes away. A slight weight gain because I find it makes me hungrier than my previous contraception but I just watch out for it and it's fine. It is a bit ugly, only a problem when on holiday and no where to hide it. It did come off in the sea so my tip is always pack extra when going away. I used to take the injection and I much preferred that.

Ive loved the patch since starting it, was on co-cyprindiol before and had really increased anxiety which immediately went away when starting the patch. During my time on the patch my abdomen began to swell up and distend and I also began with IBS symptoms which have since gone away completely since coming off the patch
