I've suffered with acne since I was a teen and had to come off Dianette due to my age. So I went on this back in October after a brief stint on Rigevidion, which I didn't get on with. Lucette made me have panic attacks and my anxiety skyrocketed while I was on it, to the point where I had to be signed off work. On top of this, I didn't really notice a lot of difference in my acne, only that it had stopped appearing around my neck under my chin. So I made the decision to come off Lucette, hopefully something else will help me.

I'm going to give this pill 4/5. First off, I started on this pill in 2019 at age 20 in combination with Spironolactone (for 6 months) to help my skin as I had back and chest acne. It definitely did the job well, my skin is so clear and I have no chest or back acne, just the occasional small spot on my face. I wasn't having sex when I first started this pill so it really was just for my skin, the only noticeable side effects at first were my boobs - they grew a lot, I went from a 32dd to a 34ff. I also had some initial weight gain but didn't have a problem losing it, I successfully lost 3 stone whilst on this pill but my boobs stayed massive (30f). The other side effect I noticed were how sensitive my eyes became, even when its rainy/cloudy outside I can barely keep my eyes open without sunglasses; I believe this is due to the pill drying them out as it has done my skin. In the past 2 years however I have noticed (as has my boyfriend and mum) how emotional I am, I cry at everything, sometimes I will be working and just start crying as well as a general feeling of melancholy and being unmotivated - even my coworkers would say 'isn't it about time you cried today?'. Not ideal. I have been contemplating coming off this pill for the past year as the lack of control regarding my emotions has become unbearable, I can't have a regular conversation without crying. Have decided that I am going to do it, although I am nervous that my skin will go back to being spotty though.

I was put on Yasmin when I was 16 for acne which suited me, I was annoyed to be put on this but told it was the same hormones. Yasmin I had sex drive, Lucette it died and I got vaginal dryness getting worse as I got older. It's only recently as I've hit 30 that I've discovered this wasn't normal and I didn't have to put up with it, so I'm now on a journey to finding one that suits me better,
