I went on Femodette after using Microgynon and I immediately noticed a few improvements. Mental health-wise I started to feel more like myself again within about a week, and my appetite went back to normal after being constantly hungry on Microgynon. However, my sex drive completely disappeared, my breasts hurt constantly, and while my moods were nowhere near as low as they had been on Microgynon, after coming off Femodette I realised that it had still made me quite angry and emotional.

I was looking for contraception to manage my painful periods, heavy bleeding that doesn't help my anaemia and my period also sometimes causes my IBD to flair. I had been having no periods for almost a year because of getting sick from IBD. When the periods returned, I wanted to go continuous pill to stop the blood loss, but Microgynon didn't work for me before so I decided to try Femodette as I'd been on it as a teenager. Within 3 days of taking this my mood became extremely unstable, it was quite scary. I now think my depression and self harming in my teens may have been at least partially related to being on this pill!

For the first few years I thought this pill was so much better than the ones I had previously been on, but in the last few years I definitely noticed it impacting my moods, my breasts were constantly swollen and sore and I had no sex drive. I only realised these were all side effects after coming off the pill, I feel so much better after stopping it.
