“Girls Allowed...”

published 24/05/2004

increase in bust size, no mood swings

odd periods

All my best mates are men. Men make good friends in my opinion. They’re funny, loyal and much less likely to judge you like other girls might. I think I relate well to men because I don’t have any sisters. Yet oddly enough, despite being friends with blokes, I’m certainly not a ‘laddette’. I’m a...

I started taking Brevinor a couple of years ago, mainly for contraceptive reasons, but also because I'd suffered for ages with the periods from hell, even ended up in casualty once because of the little devils! Anyway, I needed something to sort me out and the pill seemed the obvious solution. I...

“The quickie before a quickie”

baby free guaranteed (well 99%)

easy to forget to take them

I've tried a wide variety of contraception methods, everything from condoms to the contraceptive injection and in my opinion Brevinor is by far the best. I began taking Mycrogynon (a combined pill) when I was 15 as I was suffering from severe period pains. they were so bad that each month I was...

I changed to Brevinor approx 2 years ago and I have to say this is the best contraceptive pill I've ever been on. I wont bore you with technical details because they are readily available elsewhere. With previous pills I suffered from varying mood swings; one minute being very aggressive and the...

“Stop my heavy monthlys!”

published 23/10/2003

Small and easy to take

None really

Brevinor was recommended to me when I was in my late teens and was suffering really terribly with heavy painful periods that seemed to last forever. At the time I felt a bit too young to be taking them, think I was around 16 or 17 and the thought of taking a contraceptive pill scared me a little...

enhanced libido, no weight gain and no babies

some mild nausea

This is without a doubt the best pill I've ever been prescribed. Unlike all the others I've tried (cilest, trinodial and microgynon) Brevinor did not kill my libido - in fact, it's sent it through the roof! This could be a negative to some people, but for me it was a godsend as I'd suffered from...

“3rd time lucky?”

Increase in bust size

Sore boobs, weight gain, loss of libido

I started this pill about 2 years ago when I realised that things were getting serious between my current partner and I. Having tried Dianette & Microgynon in my late teens & early 20s I wanted something that wouldn't cause me to gain weight. After stopping the pill at 21 the weight I gained...

When i first started to take brevinor i ahd been changed from microgynon 30 as it didnt seem to be helping the pain of my periods as effectively as before. As with all new pills i was told that there would be some break-through bleeding but i didnt stop bleeding for three weeks, had constant...

Heavy embarrassing discharge, Non existant periods...

This is known as 'one of the best pills' but it is just as useless as YAS the other popular pill. Have tried many pills and so far only happy with MICROGYNON 50 although a little too strong. Brevinor-1 will make your emotions rollercoasterlike, some days you will cry over nothing or the slightest...

“Brevinor a.k.a. OUCH”

published 29/10/2010

Supposedly good for clearing skin

Sharp stabbing pains up legs and torso

Having tried 4 different contraceptive pills previously, all with adverse effects, I found Loestrin 20 which had far less side effects but played havoc with my skin AND caused excess body hair. Brevinor, containing the same progesterone as Loestrin 20 but a little oestrogen was supposedly meant...

Satisfactory

No weight gain, increase in breast size.

Breakthrough bleeding, nausea, irregular bleeds.

I do not think I would recommend Brevinor to anybody, especially somebody that has problems with breakthrough bleeding and irregular periods. I always get these types of symptoms on the contraceptive pill and Brevinor did not make it any better. This was my 3rd pill and had high hopes (especially...

“Can't Beat Brevinor”

Cant Use whilst breastfeeding

I have used the combined pill Brevinor for the past ten years and found it to be extremely effective. You don't have to take it at the exact time each night, if you miss a couple of hours your still safe. I came off Brevinor last year as we were trying for a baby, it took me four months to...

“Puky pill!!”

regular manageable periods

vomiting

I started brevinor after being on microgynon which gave me really bad nausea and migraine. I also take medication for epilepsy so the journey to find a suitable pill started a long time ago with progesterone only mini pill. If you dont mind irregular periods they generally are ok. Well, for me...
