Cilique pill watch

    I've just been prescribed Cilique, however I am really anxious to take it. I have not been on any pill before. Can anyone share their experiences? Worried about all of the side effects- weight gain, bad skin, breast growth, depression.. I am also a competitive runner and I'm worried how that will be affected. And I'm in my final year of uni and the next few months are really important that I get some work done..

    Also, the nurse said I can start it any time (protected after 7 days), but on the leaflet it says either start it on the first day of your period or up to 5 days. I would rather start it now, as I've just finished my last period, plus I'd like to start it on a Monday so it's easy to remember when my week off is.

    I was wondering if a different pill would have been better as a starting point.. and NHS guidelines are that pills containing levonorgestrel should be taken?
