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

So much back ache and pelvic cramps!! Spotting which I’ve never experienced from any other pill too!

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.

I find this pill to be very good for me. Before starting it my skin was poor, my mood was worryingly low all the time, i was far to thin ect amd since starting im so much happier and i love only getting my period every 2+ months. The only downside is that previously to starting the pill my periods had not many side effects other that they were very irregular but now when I'm on the break from the pill and on my period i get womb cramps, back pack and just general period pain to a point i find sometimes agonising like seriously cannot cope till the point i feel like throwing up and no painkillers help. The period pains will last about 2/3 days which is just about bare able but im okay with it because i get alot of benefits from this pill.

Have gained a serious amount of weight while using this pill despite having a healthy active lifestyle. My moods have also been all over the place. Will be stopping this as soon as I have an alternative.
