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.

This was the first ever pill I went on. I was on it for around 18 months and I must add that I didn't notice any negative side effects for about 10 months, but that might be because it was my first pill experience. After 10 months I started noticing my skin getting worse every time I had my pill break. My sex drive suddenly depleted entirely, and I didn't even want to think about sex. My worst symptom by far was vaginal dryness. Sex started to become very painful and it caused severe itching- I'd be waking up in the middle of the night because I was so itchy. Sometimes it was even uncomfortable to walk. I assumed it was because I was shaving and waxing, yet only recently pieced it together that it was the pill and other users reported the exact same symptoms as me. I went to my GP and swapped to Lucette, so far there's no change- but it might take a while to get used to it.

It was OK (was on it for 4 years with 2 6 month breaks) but I definitely gained weight and experienced PMS emotional symptoms when I didn’t before. Also caused my vagina to get considerably drier. I had tender breasts for at least 2, sometimes 3 weeks of the month which was very annoying, but they did get a little bigger too. No other side effects than that, I think I didn’t try any alternatives because I didn’t know the difference. The long crossover period after missing it was what attracted me as I have forgotten a couple of times.
