The patch was extremely convenient to use and it did make my periods more regular however I had extreme headaches whilst on it which hugely affected my life. I didn’t think it was to do with my patch initially however as soon as I removed it as a final resort, my headaches went. They were totally debilitating.

Honestly, it wasn’t bad while I was on it, I had pretty bad pain during periods but day-to-day felt pretty normal. Only after I came off of it did I realise I had gained over 10kgs and could literally feel my mental health improve within weeks.

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.
