The best pill I've been on! No side effects at all :-)
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

Baby Break!
Review of Nexplanon by kattwig

Advantages: reversible, lasts for three years
Disadvantages: side effects can be a bit traumatic

One of the biggest decisions a woman makes throughout her life is her choice and use of contraception and I think it's really important to say how good something works for you when you find it. I'm not saying that my methods are best for everyone but I ha ... 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

The last time I tried any birth control related tablets was 7 years ago, I went To my G.P to ask for something that would help with my periods (as they were very heavy). She was awfully quick to recommend I go on the pill (aka) Birth control in other coun ... Read review

Cerazette made a dragon of me!
Review of Cerazette Contraceptive Pill by Queggys88

Advantages: No pregnancy or periods
Disadvantages: Horrendously vulgar moods and skin

I've tried Cerazette for a month twice this year and it's just been horrendous for me! So many side effects and nothing really positive to say for it other than no periods! I was on Ovysmen for 5 years previously but I was taken off because they don't li ... Read review

Thanks for your recommendation Rachael. Ovysmen, like Cilest and Dianette is combined and like you I found it was a breeze. I was a bit grumpy for a few weeks at the start but nothing like Cerazette! They won't let me take it anymore because I'm overweight and forced me on POP (namely Cerazette) instead. by Queggys88
Try asking about Cileste or Dianette, I had no real side effects with either. Rachael. by kevin121

Nexplanon would be ideal apart from the greasy skin and acne!
Review of Nexplanon by beautybuff33

Advantages: more than 99% effective contraception for 3 years, works immediately if inserted at correct time
Disadvantages: can give you terrible skin. can cause problem bleeding, no protection against STI's.

I had Nexplanon fitted by a local GP trained in how to do this. The main reason was having loose stools due to IBS and being concerned at contraceptive failure with the pill. It was a straightforward procedure and thanks to the local anaesthetic, I felt n ... Read review

Advantages: no fear to forget any pill

A really thorough review with great easy on the eye formatting. There really is nothing left out here, plenty of detailed explaination on this choice of contraceptive. What a relief to many that have chosen this that 'the injection' is only 'once every 12 weeks'! :~) E from me xXx by Deesrev
