I was put on this pill as I struggled with irregular bleeding on the mini pill. I hadn't had a migraine in over a year. However, after the first month on this contraception I started having migraine with aura, headaches and migranes without the aura. I had a lot of headaches in a month and on my 5th month (last month) I had 5 migraines with aura in the space of 10 days. I had no other negative side effects on this pill so it was very disheartening to have to come off and be put back on the mini pill. When I came off, I had a 10 day migraine without aura!! Interestingly, I was on this pill from the summer of to the end of 2022. I had no negative side effects (only 1 migraine with aura a month but that was the norm at the time) on it until the last 2 months of 2022 where I would experience debilitating cramps mid pack at the same day every day for 4 days and the next month I had the same experiences but started bleeding this time. During my check ups I would confirm with the nurse that I could take this pill continuously and they would say yes. However, after speaking to a doctor you cannot take this pill continuously. You must have a break as it is triphasic (3 different concentrations of hormones).

I’ve been in this pill on and off (came off when I was single) for 18 years now and I think it’s great. It makes my periods lighter and skin better and my boobs slightly bigger. Not sure if it affected my weight or sex drive really as both have had their ups and downs over this time period. Mood has been stable. I really recommend this pill
