I’ve been taking the mini pill for the last 17 months. As my doctor took me off the combined pill that I’d been on 13 years with no issue. As a contraception- it works. I noticed the first few months that it was playing havoc with my body. I kept getting thrush! Which I don’t usually suffer with. And then my hair started coming out. I lost a lot of hair, and as a hairdresser I know it was a concerning amount. My iron levels were down at the time so the doctor put it down to that. My bloods went back to normal but I was still loosing a considerable amount of hair. I naturally have thick long hair. And then my skin , my skin has never been so bad. My skin and my hair were my favourite things about myself and this pill effected both of them badly for me. I never get spots, but this caused acne all on my cheeks and jaw. My doctors now put me back on my combined pill which I’m so happy about!. I won’t be changing from that again!
Hi, which pill of all the combined ones are you on? Have been given the mini pill and unhappy on it! x
