Honestly I have been pleasantly surprised with Lucette. I have been using Lucette for what feels like years now. I was originally on Microgynon and at my first check up with my doctor, I mentioned that is was really affecting my mood. I was then put on Lucette which I can honestly say has positively affected my mood - feels like it anyway. I am happier and less moody/ angry than on the precious pill. I could just feel the anger In me with the last pill but it all melted away pretty quickly after changing. That being said - I fully believe this pill has killed my sex drive. I am just not interested in it at all. I also think Lucette has affected my appetite. I feel hungry 24/7 and have definitely snacked ALOT more than before. I have gained about 4 stone since starting this pill. I have tried almost every form of diet/ exercise/ lifestyle change and I have seen no results. I fully blame the pill as I read it stores fat differently. I am looking to come off the pill purely to see if it will affect my weight at all. It has been great other than that though .. on the plus I’ve got great boobs now 🤣. If it wasn’t for the massive weight gain, I would definitely stay on.

This was a great choice until I kept getting thrush. I only took it for 3 months but got thrush twice and I never ever suffer from this. I also had this feeling like I was going to get a uti. I never did, but the feeling was there. Overall I saw an increase in my libido… which has vanished over the past 5 years due to combi pill. I didn’t really get any other side effects and I started to feel more like myself in terms of mood and mentality. Going to try yasmin and hopefully this is the same but without the reoccurring thrush!!!

This pill initially broke my skin out for 1 month, followed by gradually increasing skin quality. I now have perfectly clear skin 6 months in. Highly recommend for acne prone skin. My PMS symptoms used to be bad, lots of anger and frustration, now they have completely disappeared and I feel very calm. I get no spotting or discharge problems. My sex drive has decreased and we need to use lube due to vaginal dryness. My boobs are bigger although more tender. I highly recommend this pill, best I’ve have. Try it for 6-12 months to see if it works for you.

I love this pill. Best one I’ve had so far. I suffer with headaches I went from 10 a month to now 3/4 a month sometimes less.

The best combined pill I have used (out of 4 different ones). No negative impact on my mental health. I used to have really bad acne and this completely cleared it. Only down side is the loss of libido which doesn’t bother me much.

I was put on Yasmin when I was 17 to clear my skin, after about 2 years I was changed to Lucette. I am now 23 and up until 6 months ago I was having an operation and needed to come off of it. Since being off I have noticed massive changes. My libido was very low on this pill and was experiencing intolerances to a lot of red meat and spices. Since coming off this pill that has stopped and my libido is not low. But my skin has gone back to being quite bad. I experienced frequent mood swings and very emotional leading up/during my 7 day break.

I was prescribed Lucette and at the start all was well. It cleared up my skin a great deal and I only really get spots the week before my break. I have completely lost my libido, and the only time my sex drive increases is in my pill-free break. I suffered and still suffer with painful sex due to dryness and lost of libido, which leads to poor mental health. My periods are a lot lighter but I experience pain and discomfort in the days leading up to my period (thrush like symptoms). I would not recommend this pill at all as the negatives outweigh the ONLY positives (clear skin and lighter periods)

I have tried many pills and this is the best, although there are still side effects. I haven't gained any weight or noticed a serious change in mood. I was not spotty before this pill but I have realised that I practically never get a spot since taking this pill. However, leading up to my period (pill break) I've noticed my mood swings and emotions are stronger. My periods are regulated and I only experienced spotting in the first month. The main negative of this pill is how heavy it has made my boobs but they are not overly sensitive/tender. Other than that I cannot fault this pill.

I switched over to this pill when the pharmacy ran out of my normal one (Brevinor) for a few months. After approx 3 months on it I noticed my mood change drastically and I just felt so down all the time. I kept getting bad headaches too and felt like my head was in a cloud, having difficulty concentrating. I decided to come off the pill rather than go back to Brevinor (I had no issues with that one) and the change in the way I feel is amazing. No more random mood swings or headaches and I feel like my emotions are my own again.
