In the beginning this was great and had very little impact on me however i found I had absolutely no libido after about 2 years of taking this and once I stopped it almost immediately came back

Recommended by Gynae for suspected endo (severe bowel pain during period). Note: if you are over 14st one pill may not be strong enough. When I started with just 1 I bled constantly. So I agreed with my Dr and took two pills and this worked better for me. Pros: stopped period completely. Cons: no sex drive at all, loss of attraction to husband, detached, low mood, massive weight gain, depression, hair loss, itchy scalp. Just coming off it today as I feel like I’m at the mercy of fake hormones.

Only took this one for 3 months I think before my pharmacy swapped me to Cerazette. Was generally ok aside from the headaches and mood swings. Stopped my period, and didn't notice any weight change or acne or tenderness.

Overall happy, minimal side effects other than complete loss of libido. Havent had a period for 4 years, took about a month or 2 for that to kick in. No acne no swelling no weight change no mood swings :) wanting to swap off bc of the libido issue and not remembering to take it on time every day but will swap back if alternatives don't work out

Good pill. One of the few pop pills that do agree with me. I’ve noticed some weight gain since switching from Yasmin. Generally very good. Would recommend for those having to swap from combined to mini pill.

I started taking this pill around 9 months ago after switching from another progesterone only pill (cerelle). The reason I switched was because the pat pill gave me a period every two weeks. When I first started taking Norgeston this issue completely cleared up, however, has now come back in the last two months. Aside from this I have also been noticing in the last few months I have been getting extremely low moods as well as very painful headaches so I’m thinking of switching to the combined pill

I’ve had constant bleeding with it apart from that it’s been great after nearly everything else disagreeing with me spoke to a lowdown Gp who was amazing she has given me an action plan with what I should do going forward and different options to try etc. Giving that ago for the next 6 weeks to see if there is any difference with the bleeding.

Lost half the hair on my head and diagnosed with alopecia areata. Had to wear a wig for 12-18 months. At no point did my doctor suggest stopping the pill. I only stopped the pill when I started experiencing mood swings. After stopping mood swings improved and hair re-grew completely. No similar issues since (10 years).

Don’t keep it on the DL.Put it on the LD.
