I used this for quite a while and to be honest it seemed like it was alright. Did get a loss of libido and the occasional headache but other than that I felt it was fine. Although I have been trying different contraception and have recently gone back onto mercellion. Turns out it’s not as good as I thought. My moods are not good. I have a short temper on these and my anxiety is through the roof. It’s only when you come off something and come back a year later that actually you can tell a difference.

Didn’t have too many side effects from this pill other than complete loss of sex drive and a bit of weight gain/appetite increase. Lightened periods and reduced cramps and bloating. But Increased spots on face and body.

Taken for a few months however my sex drive and mood plummeted, making me feel awful for the months I was taking it. Stopped taking and it all returned back to normal.
