Combined pill vs. mini-pillWatch this thread
I've just been to see the nurse to see what she thinks. Most unhelpful woman in the world but she gave me the mini-pill/progesterone only pill instead (Cerelle). I've been googling it and it looks like it could be worse then the combined pill - it looks awful! Periods that don't stop for weeks, irregular, heavy bleeds, terrible acne, painful periods.
I don't know if I should try and persevere with the combined pill despite the constant headache and see if my body settles down or start with the mini-pill but I'm absolutely dreading the affects of it.
Advice? This is the first time I've tried the pill - would be good to hear others experiences with both. So bored of generic NHS leaflets, it would be good to hear some real experiences with the affects and if you think it's likely they'll settle down within three months??
Similarly, not everyone gets the side-effects of Cerelle.
Given the unhelpfulness, I'd be looking for somewhere else to talk about this and your contraceptive options.
