Girls Allowed... Diamond review

Advantagesincrease in bust size, no mood swings

Disadvantagesodd periods

"...so for the time being Brevinor is my contraceptive of choice. Brevinor ++++++ Of course, anyone can copy the information leaflet from the inside of the box; press ‘send’ and have submitted a relevant review to this site. I don’t intend to do that. It wouldn’t be useful, as anyone could download a copy from one of hundreds of websites available online (http://www.medsafe.govt.nz/consumers/cmi/b/Brevinor21.htm ) For the reader’s benefit I will ..."

A New Lease of Life

Advantagessee opinion

Disadvantagessee opinion

"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 have to say, I had a lot of concerns about taking the Pill, you hear so much bad press about it, personally, I was particularly worried about the possibility ..." Read review

The quickie before a quickie

Advantagesbaby free guaranteed (well 99%)

Disadvantageseasy to forget to take them

"...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 being violently sick, fainting and occasionally even being rushed to casualty! At first Mycrogynon was brilliant, my periods were really light and completely pain free. However, in exchange I developed splitting headaches and gained about a stone. My ..." Read review

GREAT BUT AWFUL AT THE SAME TIME

Advantagesbigger boobs, skin VERY clear, lighter periods, no cramps & no baby

DisadvantagesVERY anxious, heart palputations, slight depression, no motivation

"i was on brevinor for 2 years. It started of okay. I grew a cup size and after having heavy periods for many years ( and sometimes having them three months straight ) brevinor really helped my period be sooooo much lighter! and my face and skin cleared up so much and wasnt oily at all. This was great until i started experiencing MUCH anxiety, moodiness, heart palputations and not even wanting to leave the house. It got so bad. After going to the ..." Read review

Brevinor contraceptive pill

AdvantagesNo baby, patience, lighter periods, bigger bust size

DisadvantagesBody/Personality changes may take some time getting used to

"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 next being very emotional and crying over the slightest thing. I found when my doctor changed me over to Brevinor, within weeks I was a completely different ..." Read review

Stop my heavy monthlys!

AdvantagesSmall and easy to take

DisadvantagesNone 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. The pill is a tiny little blue tablet and if you happen to drop one on the floor, they are a nightmare to find!! The tablets are so small that I find ..." Read review

Fantastic pill - like viagra for women!

Advantagesenhanced libido, no weight gain and no babies

Disadvantagessome mild nausea

"...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 low libido and vaginal dryness on all other pills which kind of defeated the purpose of taking them. As well as enhancing my sex drive I've found that this pill has not had the negative physical effects of other brands, for example it did not give ..." Read review

3rd time lucky?

AdvantagesIncrease in bust size

DisadvantagesSore boobs, weight gain, loss of libido

"...my GP. She gave me Brevinor instead. I gained half a stone quite quickly and continued to gain weight until I had put on a stone. My breasts got bigger but were also VERY sore. I occasionally got shooting pains through them which was very worrying. My boyfriend noticed that I was rarely interested in sex. He always initiated it and I was rarely in the mood - he had to push me. When I came off this pill I asked another doctor for Yasmin but they ..." Read review

Nasty suprises

AdvantagesEffective

Disadvantagesside effects

"...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 headaches and was extremely bloated. I thought I was alone but got talking to another lady who had been on it for nearly two months and had hardly stopped bleeding ..." Read review

Brevinor - Migraine mania!!!

AdvantagesBigger bust

DisadvantagesMigraines

"I have been on brevinor now for 8 months, it has cleared up my skin beautifully and given me a fantastic bust . Its very easy to take and in the past has been a brilliant foem of contraceptive for me. I used to take Brevinor about 3 years ago and had no side effects but since going back on it after having my baby its unbearable. An alterantive needs to be found, it makes me nauseous for the first week of taking it and have severe migraines for weeks ..." Read review

Bad pill

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesHeavy embarrassing discharge, Non existant periods, Aggression, Cramps, Weight gain.

"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 excuse. Other days you will swing and want to kill people who piss you off. Apart from that, periods will take more than 7 days to work and will ..." Read review

My periods are all over the place and im bleeding on the days I should be taking pills and not bleeding on my pill free days. i also have tried Microgynon which made me in to a Angry pants all day long so I tried Brevinor as my friend was on it and it was fine with her ..."

Puky pill!!

Advantagesregular manageable periods

Disadvantagesvomiting

"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 brevinor caused daily vomiting, not nausea so wasn't really a move in the right direction!! It meant that I wasn't protected contraceptively as I was ..." Read review

I would not recommend Brevinor.

AdvantagesNo weight gain, increase in breast size.

DisadvantagesBreakthrough bleeding, nausea, irregular bleeds.

"...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 as the amount of estrogen is quite high - 30 mg) but it did not exceed my expectations. I was on it for 4 months and there was basically no improvement. I couldn't ..." Read review
