I've never had mental health issues but this pill has made me almost suicidal and made me act out in ways I never thought id behave like kind of erratic. Also made me gain 2 stone when I didn't think that would happen to me, not a good experience over the 3 years.

The only good things I could say about this pill is it made my periods super light and my skin was spotless (quite literally). Then the negatives were SO negative. I experienced unbelievable anxiety, brain fog and my anger management around the time of my period was non existent to the point the final straw was when I hurled my poor bf’s breakfast across the room in a rage 😅 I’ve spent a month on no contraception and I’ve felt like a different person around this cycle. I’ve been prescribed a different pill but tbh I think I’d rather be sane and spotty rather than go back to being someone I don’t even recognise!

Prior to using this pill I was on Microgynon with no side-effects. The pharmacy decided to change the pill, like they were changing a brand of sweets. I've steadily gained a lot of weight over 8 months. I'm a very active person & so the weight makes me look bloated & thick, mainly settling on my stomach, boobs & backside. I've also had some major mood swings, particularly with anxiety, which I've only just attributed to this pill. Plus side is I've had no periods & no issues with my sex drive, like some people have mentioned. I will be coming off this pill & chatting with my nurse about alternatives.
