I kept having two 6 day periods a month, both were as bad as each other so I lost track of which one was the "spotting" one and which was my actual cycle. Tried lowering the dose but same issue continued. No matter how much sleep I was getting I was exhausted and lightheaded. I was told this was normal.
After I stopped using the mini pill it took a while for my cycle to become normal. My skin got worse the first month or two but that also came back normal. The first cycles a experienced painful cramps, even when ovualting. After around 3 months the cramps eased and my flow became a lot lighter again and regular My energy levels increased a lot compared to when I was on the mini pill within the first month
Cycle return to normal
