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.

I overall didn’t really have a problem with this. I was getting really bad acne on my cheeks and literally as soon as I started taking this I completely stopped getting pimples... which is great!!! I did notice I had a few mood swings - nothing too bad. My boobs got a little bigger but on the 7 days off the pill it got back to normal and then when I started taking it again it grew a little, vice versa. I also did notice my bloatings lasted longer. The only thing i have to complain about this is how PAINFUL my cramps were on the first day i got my period. I have always been lucky to barely ever get cramps when i was on my period, but seriously the first day cramps i felt when i got off the pill just for 7 days were the WORST. This was my first time on the pill and I don’t have any seriously complaints at all xx
