I was happy enough on this pill for about 4 years from the age of 16 to 20, however from 20 onwards the emotional side effects especially in the week before the withdrawal bleed were too much. I was crying all the time for no reason whatsoever which was very unlike me. I switched to the ring at the age of 21 and this definitely helped with the pms symptoms.

Despite some of the negative side effects. It’s definitely better than the other pills I’ve tried so far. It’s been 100% effective. And after a few years of use, the initial weight gain does stop.

After a few days of taking Microgynon I began to feel very anxious. I didn’t immediately realise it was my pill until I began to notice other side effects, notably the change in my skin. I have never struggled with acne, only having an occasional spot around my period. Microgynon changed all of that! After only a week I had sore, eczema-like rashes around my mouth. My skin felt sore, dry and inflamed constantly no matter how much expensive moisturiser i slathered on. Around the same time my skin exploded, I began to get serious mood swings. I will go from laughing hysterically at absolutely nothing to sitting staring into space feeling very very low. My sex drive evaporated and the PH balance in my vagina was definitely thrown off. I stopped taking this pill two days ago and I already feel so much better, although now I have been prescribed three more sorts of medication for the state of my skin, not the situation I wanted to be in. I was under the impression the pill improved an individuals skin!
