Just started taking the oral contraception, maexeni 4 days ago and, either it’s in my head, but I’m already feeling quite depressed/anxious. I’m mainly taking this for contraception but also the potential weight gain. I was just wondering, has anyone used this contraceptive, and their honest opinion and experience on it? Would be very appreciative, as I have no one else to talk to about things like this (except the nurse at the clinic) but I’d rather listen to someone with real life experiences? I’m mainly interested on the weight gain & the moods. Other than that.. and also if not maexeni experiences, just any oral contraceptives experiences will do xx

Honestly everyone will have different side effects. What one person tells you they experienced could be totally different to what you experience. It takes your body about 3 months to get used to the pill so if by then you notice you are depressed and anxious etc then go back to your GP and you can try a different pill.

I would definitely go back if its causing you problems or bad side effect as everyones opinion will be different.

I was on microgynon for a year before switching to the implant.
In that year I got switched to maexeni unknowingly and it wasn't fun I experienced many side effects like depression, low libido, acne, and most importantly I never stopped bleeding on it.

Some do have good experiences as contraception is different for everyone so if it doesn't work well for you definitely look into something else

Hello, I had the nexplanon implant for 6 years and now I’m on the Maexeni pill.. honestly with both of them I’ve felt depressed and down (currently searching how to improve my mood while still on them) I had a month break between the implant and Maexeni, I felt amazing; back to my old self, happy , making jokes, organising plans, within a week of taking Maexeni the mood returned and it comes and goes. I genuinely celebrate when I take a 7 day break as by the end of the week I will feel myself if only for a few days. I’ve been taking them for 4 months now and I know for certain it’s the hormone.. hope this helps, everyone is different, but it did lead me to borderline suicidal thoughts when I first got it, but like I said before, having the month break and the 7 day breaks I can be 100% sure it’s the hormone.. x
