I started this pill after coming off Yasmin, i had a horrible time with yasmin so i was nervous. But this pill was amazing. My moods were fairly stable, my skin got better my weight regulated. I initially had some mild side effects but they stopped after a few months. I was on this pill from 15-22 and i never had any problems. I have recently had to change to a mini pill as I can’t take pills with oestrogen in any more, i was annoyed to come off Lizinna because it worked so well for me. I would definitely recommend it

I was previously on cilest and was told it was discontinued and they swapped me onto lizinna, I have been using it for 2 or so years and now wanting to switch. Noticed side effects were increased weight gain, despite eating the same and exercising I have not been able to loose weight the same as before, I used to be quite skinny and despite the same eating pattern have put on lots of weight, with weight gain my breasts are significantly larger. My sex drive has definitely lowered. In terms of skin it has been good for my skin although I never suffered with bad skin previously. I feel as though the side effects from this pill have definitely taken a while to become noticeable, as at first I had no real issue with it.

Started taking Lizanna after changing from Rigevidon as I heard all the horror stories about it and it wasn’t helping me in anyway whatsoever. I was still miserable and depressed from the pill and it didn’t help my periods, BUT neither does Lizanna. However after starting Lizanna my periods and much heavier and 10x as painful, the low back pain I get from it is agony. The pain keeps me awake all night and feeling utterly uncomfortable.
