this is the best pill I've tried! I did experience a little itching (feels like I have thrush) but it's only minor and is no where near as much as it was with other pills and after 4-6 months it seems to have disappeared. my periods are lighter and the pain is less but still painful. it is manageable though. no emotional side effects that I can notice. my skin is the same as it was when I wasn't on bc but that's okay.

Good contraception but side affects get worse to deal with after years in my opinion. Very easy to just go along with the side affects.

I was on this lol for many years. It was ok, Then I had a break and realised how much better my mood and headaches were. I had a break of around a year then started taking it again, the headaches, weight gain and mood change were very noticeable. I’m going to stop taking it and change to the mini pill.

Personally this isn't an ideal contraception, but it's better than previous pills. The lesser of a few evils.

The best pill I have been on so far! No more bleeding in between periods. Acne has cleared.

Went on this pill due to the fact that I had breakthrough bleeding on Millinette and I was having symptoms of oestrogen overdose. Since then my body feels a lot better and in it’s more natural state.

Have been using this pill for almost 3 months and I have decided to switch to Yasmin at the end of this packet. My chest was really sore for the first month or so but it wasn't unmanageable, I went up a few cup sizes and my periods were much lighter and I had little to no cramps! However, the bloating and persistent low mood have put me off this pill, people also said how different I had acted since being on it and I experienced mood swings quite a lot. Felt like I had permanent brain fog while taking the pills then during the 7 days without taking them I felt like a completely different person and was way more emotionally stable.

2 day into this pill I experienced such terrible mood swings and depression. crying a lot and having very little motivation to do much. I knew this was entirely hormonal since things made me cry that normally wouldnt. I had been on a mini pill previously and didn't experience this, the only change in my life was this pill. The majority of my days I am now extremely sad and depressed and am currently looking to come off this pill. This is making me give up hope a bit as have tried many different pills in the past, and I was very hopeful with this one, but unfortunately feeling how I do on it is not worth it.

I started using Femodene to regulate my period as I was having little to bone in the past, and when I did have me period I had extreme pain. It also lasted a lot longer (up to 9 days at times). The pill helped to regulate that. The pain is much better and I only have light bleeding for 2 to 3 days. I did gain a bit of weight and my breast size increased quite a lot (had to change my bra size), which bothered me at the beginning, but compared to the pain and uncertainty of when my next period will be, it’s worth it.

I switched to Femodene after about 4 years of being on another combined pill (can’t remember the name) as I had convinced myself it was causing me to gain weight (inconclusive although I do think it contributed). I was sold Femodene as a ‘new age pill with less side effects’. I didn’t really notice any side effects straight away but over the years of being on it I realised my sex drive was ever decreasing and it generally made me feel very flat and almost like I had a brain fog when I was on it. I would get a headache at the start the pill free week and light periods but my mind would feel clearer and I was more in touch with my emotions. My skin was also pretty clear throughout. It took me a couple of years to convince myself that the side effects for my mind and libido were worth switching to something else even though I was apprehensive.
