I love Mercilon, I have been taking it for a year and have not had side effects except that my periods began coming at the beginning of the last week of active pills and would last for about 7 to 10 days. I stopped the pills now because I want to try Cerazette, just to see how the progestin only pills work. Otherwise, my sex drive is very high in general and Mercilon did not impact it at all.

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 got quite a bit of acne from mercilon and it made me sweat a lot, it felt uncontrollable, I struggled to manage it. The worst part was actually the breakthrough bleeding. I have regular periods, but on mercilon, I would bleed continuously until I took the break then the bleeding would let up, but start when I started my next round of pills
