When I first went onto this form of contraception I had a period for 2 months, then after that it stopped for around 6 months, then it was so irregular I couldn't track it and it was so heavy and long. It was exhausting! After having 2 rounds of the implant I decided to have it removed, and not go onto another for a while.
I have never had anxiety before in my life, 3 months into taking this mini-pill I was worried constantly. At first I didn't link taking the pill to how I was feeling and thought it was just something I was going through, however, it got so bad that I decided to change pills to see if it helped at all - overnight, I was feeling less worried, less shaky, less like the world was coming to an end! There was slight weight gain and my periods were heavier, but it was the anxiety that really got me.
I changed to this mini-pill from Cerelle as that one gave me quite bad anxiety. Apart from slight weight gain, feeling tired in the few days before my period and having quite a heavy period in the beginning this pill has regulated my periods and shortened them. Will continue using it.
