I swapped onto Lucette after I started having spotting on Yasmin. I thought it would be an easy switch as they are the same but it was not. I started having awful low moods and suffering from cystic acne for the first time in my life. I stopped after 6 weeks. I have since found out that they use different binders in yasmin and lucette and that is what likely caused my issues.

While the pill can cause/increase migraines in some people, I actually found that the combined pill helps mine. I usually get a migraine 3/4 days into my 7-day pill break, but shortening my pill break to just 3 or 4 days — starting a new pill strip a few days earlier — has stopped my hormone-related migraines.

I went on this one after a bad experience with a similar pill it’s okay. I kind of feel stuck on it because it’s a big improvement from the sickness I felt from the last pill but it’s still not great however I fear that if I change my pills again all those side effects will come back. I experienced HRT like symptoms from what i’ve seen they get better then they get horrendously worse it’s like a constant cycle.
