Okay so I’ve been off the pill for about 7 months now after being on it for only 8. My mental health was awful at the time so I needed a break (not sure if it was pill or me).
I didn’t gain weight from my old pill (microgynon), but does the pill (both types) actually make you gain weight??? I would like to try a new one again as my periods are quite irregular and I don’t really like relying on condoms. I would like to try microgynon again, but at the same time I’d also like something new, but the thought of gaining weight is putting me off trying a new brand.
(Also, are mood swings less likely on the mini pill?, I got recommended Yaz one time but the risk of blood clots terrifies me).
