I was given this as cilest was discontinued. I was doubtful to try it but I was told it was the same ...my mood was so low, I had thrush every month right in the middle of my cycle. I just can’t believe it was “exactly the same “ I was so bloated before periods and uncomfortable. My legs were swelling and I had terrible headaches that turned to migraines that eventually turned to migraines with aura that came on so suddenly I had to pull over while driving. Everything built up over time and I just decided to stop taking it and see if it calmed down. I’ve been told not to take the combined pill anymore and prescribed something else but like I say , I’ve decided to have a break for a while and all symptoms have vanished, no headaches at all.
It’s been really positive I feel so much better. my moods are still somewhat up and down since I stopped taking it three months ago. But no more headaches, I feel less tired and more awake. No more brain fog ,no more aura migrainesz I feel much calmer. My periods came back to normal and have been regular. They are obviously a little heavier now.
Cycle return to normal
