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.

Weirdly my worst side effects were during the week I went off this - dizziness, nausea, headaches. I was advised I could stay on it without a break, but after three months I had heavy breakthrough bleeding (not just spotting), so took a week off and felt dreadful. While on the pill I had more acne as well, which cleared up a bit during my week off. Needless to say this hasn’t been the right pill for me.

Made my boobs larger but a bit more tender. Occasionally experienced bleeding after a while because I took it back to back. I had the worst period cramps of my life when I had a period on this pill
