It was a decent contraceptive with not too many symptoms that I noticed. I used this while I was between Qlaira (which I loved but went out of stock). I knew that a low dose combined contraceptive suited me better so I gave this a shot as it seems to currently have the lowest in the market. I preferred Loette/Aviane which has an even lower dosage but was discontinued. On the whole, this one didn't give me crazy symptoms, and what was there was mild enough to deal with, but I was happy to move on to Kyleena soon after.

This was my first pill, and as someone with generally stable emotional range, I was an absolute mess. I cried all the time and didn't understand why. My poor boyfriend at the time had to live with it. It made me into a soppy, weepy mess over ridiculous things. I'm so glad I realised that the pill was doing this to me and stopped.

I really built myself up for the pain of insertion, so I took two paracetamol and two ibuprofen before going in around 3pm. They told me that they do not offer local anaesthetic or numbing gel as they think it makes no difference, but they gave me some naproxen as well for the pain after and they said that the cocktail of three drugs was okay. I would say that the forceps stabilising the uterus part was the most uncomfortable, the sounding and IUD insertion was a dull but strong pain, which I could almost feel approaching before it hit like a wave. I felt pretty good immediately after so I was quite happy, and the nurses were excellent and that definitely helped ease the situation. What I was unprepared for was what came after. I thought that after 6 painkillers, I was tranquilised like a horse, but my trip back home by tube was so intensely painful I struggled to not tear up. The whole evening after I was in a ridiculous amount of pain with the cramping. I had to try to put myself to sleep as soon as possible. The next ten days, I cramped really badly every evening at 6pm on the clock! Not sure why. My hot water bottle was my best fried. I was also continuously spotting for the next entire month. Initially a bit too much for a panty liner, and more suited to a light pad, and by the end of the month, I was changing panty liners twice a day. After the first month, everything stopped. It has literally been golden since then! Three months in, I have got no cramping, no spotting. I got a period for three days (usually 5) for which I just needed one light pad per day for. But its been an absolute breeze. The one change I can see is that I have more discharge than before, but I'm living my best contraceptive-induced life with that being the biggest side effect.

I thought I didn’t have much negative side effect after this and I’ve taken it about twice or thrice in the last ten years when another contraceptive method has failed. Every time I have taken it, about a month after I have an incredible amount of hair fall which really worried me.

I loved this pill. It worked so well for me. I barely had any side effects and my periods stopped. The one big side effect was that my sex drive was very low. The other challenge is that you cannot miss any pills. I still loved these because my mood and acne and lack of weight gain was so good. Unfortunately it’s been out of stock for the last nearly six months or so as all the good pills always are.
