Gedarel 30/150 pill - Combined Pill

I really enjoyed this contraception having switched from progesterone only to the combined pill, however I did develop migraines with aura which I have previously never had in my life before which is the only reason I was advised to not take this pill/ type of pill any more. This is a shame as I had increased sex drive and regular periods and it did not cause me to have mood swings like the progesterone only pill.
