I've been on this since I was a teenager and think of it as ol' reliable. It's been good for my skin, hasn't changed my mood and has made periods a breeze. I do experience vaginal dryness, though. In combination with the reduced sex drive it causes, it can be quite frustrating!

I went on mericon after having a bad reaction to LEVEST which caused hallucination, sickness and muscle weakness. I was told mericon was a lower dosage and that I shouldn't have side effects. This pill gave me serve depression and anxiety , panic attacks and suicidle thoughts which have never ever crossed my mind before taking this pill. I became incredibly dizzy, lack of concentration, sickness and tiredness and loss of all sex drive and self confidence. eventually I came off the pill - best decision I ever made.

I’ve taken this contraceptive for almost 2 years and also completely lost my sex drive! I thought there was something wrong with me until I started doing some research about the pill. I’ve stopped using it now for almost 3 weeks and feeling “normal” except for lots of breast tenderness
