Review of Microgynon 30 Contraceptive Pill by NBCMad92

Advantages: Easy To Take, Easy To Store, Good Instructions
Disadvantages: Lots Of Side Effects To Get

My periods were always strange when I was younger. One month it would be weak, then I wouldn't come on for months, then it would be very heavy, then I would have another period a few weeks later etc. It was an absolute nightmare for me when I first star ... Read review

I went on the pill as a teenager to sort out my periods too. I only knew it was an option as mum was a nurse, I think it should definitely be talked about during Sex Ed. Very helpful review :) by GunShotResidue
And experiences well shared they were - the whole point of taking them at the same time every day is so that you DO remember to take them - obviously the pills I'm now on are very different, but the routine is the same - before bed each night is best bet, doesn't matter what time you retire, glass of water, pop pills, job done!

Completely and utterly useless
Review of Implanon Contraceptive Implant by Winter4444

Advantages: None I can think of
Disadvantages: Constant bleeding, permanent nerve damage at site

This is the worst contraceptive I have ever tried. All in all Iíve tried 10. I bled from the minute I had it but in until I had it out. I begged for it out over and over again but was made to keep it in for 9 months. What is it ? So the implant is a ... Read review

Review of Cilest Contraceptive Pill by Winter4444

Advantages: Regular, light, painless periods

After coming off of Microgynon because of migraines I was really hopeful this pill would work. Unfortunately this pill gave me nausea and the migraines. Because I was being sick with this pill as well my dr was worried I was bringing the pill back up an ... Read review

Just not the right fit
Review of Microgynon 30 Contraceptive Pill by Winter4444

Advantages: Regulate periods, not many side effects.
Disadvantages: Causes the most horrible migraines.

I feel like this pill is probably given to a lot of women as a first contraceptive option. I had really regular, light, painless bleeds on this which came during the pill break and left before I started the next pack. Didnít even really affect my skin, ... Read review

ATTENTION! Depression/moods from combined pill/patch?!
Review of Cerazette Contraceptive Pill by foggot-spider

Advantages: Everything? I have my life back and am happy for the first time in years...TRY IT NOW!
Disadvantages: Slightly bloated in the evenings and that's all.

ATTENTION! Depression/moods from combined pill/patch?! Sometimes so bad you don't know what to do? I urge you to just go and get a progestogen-only pill. I know you've probably heard a lot of negative things about the mini-pill, but I can promise you it's ... Read review

I am slightly confused as to the comment below asking for the author to clarify price and where to buy this considering it's a prescription pill and I would have thought that nurses would all be generally aware of what a contraceptive pill was.... by euphie
I'm a bit confused that you mentioned the price, given that this is a UK site; generally speaking, the contraceptive pill is prescribed free of charge (or, certainly is in England). by KateHurst

Review of Vitabiotics Pregnacare Conception Tablets by Kitkat4730

Advantages: Able to use them in early pregnancy so no waste
Disadvantages: Very large pill

I came across Pregnacare Conception and decided to buy a packet. A little bit of history for you; I had had two miscarriages in the past and I had been trying to conceive for a couple of months before I gave these a try. Alongside the female version, I a ... Read review

Advantages: none whatsoever
Disadvantages: suicide in pill form

I used Cerazette in 2012, prescribed by my doctor. I had a minor bleeding that didn't stop caused by endometriosis and an ovarian cyst of 4.5 cm. The doctor told me that Cerazette is for endometriosis and I should take the pills continously, without a sto ... Read review

Review of Cilest Contraceptive Pill by clover555

Advantages: No side effects! None! Much lighter periods. No pregnancy (obviously)
Disadvantages: Can't think of any....your doctor won't give it to you unless you ask...

...six types of pill and Cilest is by far the best, in my opinion. It seems to have the right balance of low enough dose to not have any side effects,but strong enough to work properly - unlike Mercilon/Marvelon on which I had spotting all the ti ... Read review

Sorry to hear of the awful problems you have faced x by brittle1906
This is a very frightening situation, and I'm afraid women are not being given the information they need to make an informed choice. I 'm afraid the NHS does pay doctors a premium to convince women to use these and extra premiums if they keep them in. For this reason a local hospital tried to force me to keep an IUD in inspite of nearly bleeding to death from the bloody thing - better to risk my life than risk the premium. I won't rate this as I don't want to rate down, and for a higher rate this would need more detail on the IUD in general, but I can tell how upset you are. I would strongly recommend googling: The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust and having a look at their forum. The ladies there are very well informed and may be able to help you. I leave a message in your private guestbook as well, but do hang in there :) by Marge3781
