I started seeing a therapist because of how depressed this pill has made me. My doctor advised I continue to take it despite this. I am on my third month and it has only got worse! I have never been depressed in my life so it’s thrown my world upsidown. I previously had an IUD which I had in for around a year, I had continuously bleeding for that entire year hence why I made the switch. Fair to say I’ll be getting on this pill as soon as I can.

Been on this pill for nearly 6 months since I’ve been on this pill I’ve noticed I have gained half a stone and i would get other side effects such as sweating and nausea and sometimes the odd headaches the only improvement I have noticed with this pill is clear skin and more regular lighter periods the great gain for me isn’t great I exercise a a lot and can’t seem to shift the weight I’m hoping to switch to a more permanent contraception as I’m not planning on ever having children in the future

I’ve had to stop taking this pill because every time I would start taking it after a period break it would give me extreme nausea. I would even wake up in the night with it. No point in taking it anyway as my sex drive is so low (probably from the pill) I’m not at risk of pregnancy at all. Only good thing about it is it’s kept my skin clear
