I took the pill back to back, and only experienced some spotting once or twice a year. I loved not having periods. I never got pregnant and I didn't have any issue remembering to take the pill. My moods did not seem to change although I did have depression during this time, and my sex drive was lower. However, I suffered from 6 + years of extremely uncomfortable bloating, recurrent thrush and BV, and more recently a strange underarm rash. I think my body was reacting badly to the oestrogen. I thought I had bad IBS or a food intolerance, but the symptoms disappeared immediately after coming off the pill, so if you're experiencing these symptoms I'd consider changing your contraception.

Have been taking Ovranette for around 10 years now purely for contraceptive reasons. I never had any issues with periods or had major acne problems (just typical teenage acne!). A few months after taking Ovranette I only really get spots if my diet has been bad and my periods are so much lighter. Dramatic reduction in sex drive, and gradual weight gain over the years. Overall I’m pleased with Ovranette as I haven’t had many major side affects, so will continue taking it.

Cleared skin! - took 5-6 months to properly kick in, but after this time stubborn acne was almost completely clear Mood: felt very unemotional - quite numb & constant negativity, loss of interest in things I used to enjoy (drinking, socialising). Generally felt pretty even keeled & didn’t suffer huge anxiety or depression as I have experienced with other contraceptives (the implant, oestrogen only pill & Yasmin), or mood swings. But I am feeling a lot more positive since coming off this pill. Migraine/aura: suffered pretty debilitating migraine & aura (often could hardly see due to the aura effects), which has pretty much gone since coming off this pill & is the reason I did stop taking it Period: constant slight period, which caused constant thrush, tiredness due to loss of blood & iron Sex: constant vaginal dryness to the point that sex was uncomfortable, and noticeable loss of sex drive The constant period, dryness and loss of sex drive were pretty annoying but if you can bear these & you’e looking for a pill that will clear skin effectively without a huge negative change to your mood then I’d recommend this pill. The migraines were the reason I stopped taking it as these were becoming unbearable.
