I was put on this pill after loestrin 20 was discontinued. The first 3 weeks were OK, however, my mood was lower, during the fourth week I had intense depression and anxiety/hysterical mood swings during my week off when I had my period. During the second month, I started bleeding heavily, am experiencing extreme exhaustion and anxiety, so much so, I have had to stop taking this pill.

I started using this type of pill because it was a lower hormone dosage than other mainstream brands, but since coming off of it, I would never go back on to it! I ended up taking it for the majority of my 20s so thought I was just 'myself' but since coming off I've realised I was much more emotional and sensitive than I am now. I didn't put a great amount of weight on, using it however I do feel like I carried a lot of water and instantly lost that puffy look when I came off of it. The only perks were my periods were super short and I always had energy, I am now on the copper IUD and often have a 'tired' week before and during my period which I didn't have with Femodette.

Somewhat negative mood
