I've tried Cilest, Migrogynon, Loestrin 20, Marvelon and more bcp's in the past. Recently I tried Yamsin, which was excellent, but I lost all libido. (My Dr's trying to find something that doesnt give me migraines & which also reduces painful & heavy periods.)
I started Loestrin 30, and stopped after 3 months, as I had these side effects: -palpitations -painful periods -irritability -dry skin & spotty chin -Migraines -Tiredness
On Gp's advice, I restarted it, and I'm pleased to say all but the migraines disappeared, and I'm absolutly fine on it! The Dr suggested I tri-cycle so I dont have to expereice monthly migraines, and its been great!
This bcp has plus points. -It increases the bust (not good for me!). -Bleeds are about 4-5 days , which I think is superb (considering without the pill, mine might be 8 days!). -I've not become pregnant! -My libido is much improved!
You take 1 of the green pills roughly the same time each day for 21 days, then you break for 7 days. If you need to, you can continue to the next pack without a break, if you were going on hols or something........ There is a guide with pack telling you when/how to take the pill & what things lessen its effect, (like antibiotics), or what to do if you are late in taking it, or miss it completely.
It should work for most young women, but it isnt suggested for women over 40, smokers, or those that are overweight or have heart problems.
