Went on the pill to regulate my cycle after months of intermenstrual bleeding (suspected cause for which was a prolonged period of stress). The pill's been great in bringing my cycle back to normal and I've been taking it for 13 months now. The withdrawal bleeds at the end of each set of pills are very light and I have almost no cramps compared to what I had during my natural menstruation. The pill has also helped me with hair issues and I no longer have breast tenderness. No mood, no skin, no libido issues, etc. The only side effect however is vaginal dryness and it has been quite the issue issue - will likely switch to another pill just because of that.

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.

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.
