Brilliant pill that the clinic prescribed instead of GP. Overall good but weight gain isn't great

At the time I was very happy on this contraceptive pill. Minimal side effects, Improved my skin, boobs went up a cup size. Came off it as I was swapped to Microgynon 30 due to my sexual health practice no longer having maexini in stock. Since coming off combined contraceptives I have realised that the pill had lowered my sex drive and left my emotions feeling rather monotone.

I have sex regularly with my partner and I haven't had any pregnancy scares since I started using this. I am quite meticulous about taking the pill every day around the same time, so I'm unsure of the efficacy if not being very regular with the pill. As far as I know, I have no symptoms due to this contraception. I have developed a latex allergy since I started taking this contraceptive, but this could be unrelated? Haven't been off it since latex allergy developed so couldn't say for sure. The only thing that really worries me is that I'm a smoker and I know estrogen increases my risk for heart attacks and blood clots - I have spoken to my GP about this concern and was advised that this would only become a huge issue in my 30s

Honestly if your looking for something to help stop your periods but don’t mind gaining weight, increase in acne and being sad all the time recommended this pill if not don’t do it I got recommended to not take a break from the pill at all by my doctor if it works for me wich is amazing as I now don’t suffer from painful periods like before, also a change in discharge may accure because of the hormone overall I’d just get the implant I’m going to x

For about over a week, I've been experiencing on and off pelvic cramping that I have not had before taking this pill. It's extremely annoying and seems to be triggered when I stand up or move. Rarely when I'm not moving.

I haven't tried other contraception pills but overall this one seems good , i get less painful periods and theyre lighter.I have had slight changes to Areola colouring which is a hormonal thing since going on this pill . I have found my breasts stay tender for longer. It has affected my sex drive but ever so slightly , it could also be my anti depresants

When I first started the pill it was going great, a few months later I realised my mood was extremely low to the point I’ve never felt that bad in my life. Then when I went for a check up they said my blood pressure was unusually high because of the pill, I was only 16.
