Slynd birth control pill reviews

Slynd is a new type of progestin-only birth containing a progestin called drospirenone, which is anti-androgenic. Unlike other progestin-only pills currently available that have to be taken within 3 hours to be effective, Slynd needs to be taken within 24 hours - just like combined birth control pills. Slynd comes in packets of 28 pills with 24 active pills in a pack, and 4 placebo pills. You may have a scheduled withdrawal bleed when taking the placebo pills but some users also experience irregular bleeding.

Some irregular bleeding and headaches in the first few weeks but overall a good experience. This is the first birthcontrol pill that did not give me mood swings and depressive feelings.

Chosen due to migraine with aura risk, had hair loss but could be unrelated. I did not bleed for first 3 months, now I do not bleed on the placebo week, but in the third week of a new pack

This pill has helped me so much with heavy periods. The first month I spotted, then had a quick, light period. The second month was the lightest period I've had in years. The issue I'm having is I have more cramps on it than off, and the biggest issue is that it's making me moody and tense. I love what it's done for my period physically, but I'm snapping at my family much more than I used to. I see the doctor next week. I'm not sure what I'll do yet.

I've experienced less pain around my uterus and ovaries, cysts are reduced, my breast are slightly enlarged and tender, my bones (especially hip, knee, and ankle joints) ache and hurt occasionally, mysex drive seems to have increased (I still find my partner very attractive just as before, which based on experiences I've seen others go through was a potential risk).
