I didn’t notice many side effects whilst using the pill - occasional hormonal spots on my face mid-cycle and period-like cramping whilst settling in to its use. However, the hormone headache on the pill-free week is like nothing I’ve ever experienced before. No pain killers took it away and I spent 2 days with a hot water bottle across my head. I have since stopped taking the pill but would probably skip my period if I was to continue taking gedarel!

Absolutely would not recommend. I'm 17 and started taking this contraception for period control as advised by my doctor, first week in everything was fine, I have quite a bit of abdominal cramping but I was assured it was normal. Second week in I have had nonstop panic attack and related symptoms, my mood had been the lowest ever and I just felt awful. Third and fourth week (current) I've been bleeding, lightly, for a total of 14 days now and it's showing no signs of stopping, my anxiety is causing me huge distress and I can't wait to get off it.

This contraception made me cry all the time and made my moods incredibly low. As soon as I stopped taking it I instantly felt better and back to myself. Would not recommend!

Although I definitely had lighter and less painful periods I had unbearable migraines. They stopped immediately when I stopped taking this pill so I’m switching to the mini pill as I’ve not had migraine issues on that before.

This pill was great for the first two years as I wasn’t having any of the external side-effects of previous pills I’d tried (weight gain and acne mainly). But in the last year or so, my moods have started to plummet and I’ve experienced a lot of anxiety and depression which worsens in sync with my monthly cycle. I just don’t get excited for anything anymore, my baseline mood is so low. I’m now looking at switching to a different form of contraception which will hopefully have less of a negative effect on my moods.

Its been okay so far, coming to the end of the first month. Definitely noticed breast tenderness and they have grown. Also, i feel a lot more emotional, think its made me quite a bit more negative and have a lot more mood swings

I started taking this contraceptive to reduce my period pain and improve acne, but after three months, there were no changes that I could notice with either of these. However, I found myself much more irritable during the second half of the pill cycle than I was before I started taking it. I also had increased cramping before the bleeding started, a general flatter mood and headaches and nausea that I never usually experienced before. My body shape has also changed and have put on a bit of weight but I'm not sure if this is linked.

Don’t keep it on the DL.Put it on the LD.
