I switched to this pill due to sensitivity to progesterone only methods and struggling with low mood during PMS. It helped my moods massively and improved my skin, however it did cause me to have very tender breasts at some points during my cycle. I took it continuously for 3 months with a 4 day break so only had a period every 3 months however usually I'd get spotting for 1 or 2 days around the 2 month mark- not sure if this would even out after a while as I was only on this pill for 6 months. I've now had to be taken off the combined pull due to high blood pressure but would have continued on it if I was able.

This pill was fine at first however I began to really struggle with anxiety. I didn't fully realise how bad it had become until I was switched to the combined pill and pretty much overnight my anxious thoughts became more manageable and less frequent. This is a shame as otherwise this pill was good for me, stopped periods completely and didn't experience any other negative side effects.
