For the first few weeks of taking the pill I noticed I had a lot of mood swings and negative feelings as well as having quite sore/tender breasts, achne on my face and back, and continuous period cramps. I have not experienced any type of bleeding since starting the pill, but I do still have regular cramps and lower back pains at the time I would have been on my period. The period pains I am getting on the pill are significantly worse than before I started taking it, but they are manageable with prescribed pain medication. Before I started the pill I had never suffered with any sort of achne, chronic headaches or migraines but these are all now regular for me. I would recommend this pill if you would like to stop heavy bleeding but be aware that there are some not so nice side effects that could occur.
So far okay. I had mood swings and headaches in the first 2 weeks but that has stopped. I also got some spots on my chin. I am currently on a weight loss journey and have lost 14 lb since being on this pill (just under 2 months). My appetite hasn’t been impacted and my sex drive has improved since coming off the combined pill and going onto this Period wise, I had a light one after being on it for 7 days but I had just come off the combined pill so it was probably caused by a drop in Oestrogen. I haven’t had a period for nearly 6 weeks now but had cramping when it roughly due for about 4 days but no bleeding since the period at the start.
The first side effect I really noted from being on this pill was very low mood (felt very emotional in situations where I'd normally feel fine) and breast tenderness as well. When I had my first period on the pill, it lasted for 38 days before I had to stop taking it.
