Problems switching from Microgynon 30 to Levest Watch

    I've been on Microgynon 30 for almost 5 years with only very minor problems at the beginning but when I went to get a check up before I could get a new prescription the doctor told me she was giving me Levest instead but it was the same as my previous pill.

    I started taking it on Saturday evening and I was fine that night, but last night I woke up feeling sick and very hot, it was definitely a hormonal kind of sickness so I knew it was the new pill that was causing it.

    It was bad enough for me to not want to carry on taking it even if it is just a case of getting used to it, but I don't see why this is happening if it apparently has the same active ingredients in the same doses than Microgynon? I think the NHS might have halted its use of Microgynon altogether but I don't want to go an another pill, would it be worth me trying to find it if I can get it from elsewhere?
