I was on this for 6 years and I was told that if I was getting bad migraines that I could be at risk of a stroke- something that I was unaware could happen and had been happening for months.

Did its job in preventing pregnancy but had to stop due to debilitating mental side effects, nausea, & markedly decreased sex drive. Felt extremely moody & anxious, random crying spells for no reason. Frequently would wake up in the middle of the night feeling I was going to vomit, very hot & sweaty so didn't sleep well while on it. Only took it on full stomach to try to reduce the nausea but it didn't always matter. Not pleasant at all.

Was great in terms of taking the pill back to back - no periods. But I ended up developing migraines and my doctor switched me to the mini pill because of that. Since switching from the COC to mini pill, my sex drive has come back.
