    Hey,

    I've been on Feanolla for over a year now and can say its been alright, not too bad! Didn't really effect me massively for the first couple of months, and more recently my periods are spaced about 2 months apart from each other, which is great physically although paranoia/worrying about pregnancy does happen but its the case of getting use to it! With all pills, doctors recommend you stick to it for at least 3 months to let hormones settle and then see how you feel...so worth sticking it out!

    I've been on this pill for just over a month now. I took the first one on the first day of my period, and my period was normal, but unfortunately i got my period again 2 weeks early (usually they're 4 weeks apart). However because of how little time I've been on this pill I'm not really worried about it. The period I got just recently was very light, and out of about 14 days, 4 were bleeding and 10 were spotting so nothing too bad. So far no increase in acne, no increase in weight and seemingly no mood swings. I have also heard of women who just DON'T get their period at all on this pill, so I think it is very personal and dependent on your body.

    I was on this for 3 months and for the 1st 3 weeks non stop bled but after that was quite regular with the occasional breakthrough bleeds. It did give me slightly worse acne but nothing crazy(not as bad as when I was on the combined pill) as far as pms and cramps it was so much bearable!
