Does anyone take this or have you ever taken it? Please tell me something positive about it. I'm due to start taking it this week after not getting on very well with another pill - I stupidly Googled it and seem to have come across nothing but bad stories about it.

I used it for about 3 years until my GP decided i was too fat to continue taking it and put me on Cerezette. TBH i had no problems, no random bleeding other than my pill free week where i had a "period". I ran packs together with no problems on holidays and things.

Chids, that's what I've been waiting to hear! I appreciate that they can affect people in different ways but everything I read was really starting to put me off. I've been having random bleeding on Marvelon, despite being on it for like 10 years prior to having F without a problem so that's the main thing I want to avoid x

No it was fine, in fact i'd have been quite happy stopping on it, but the dr wouldn't let me.

I've used it between having E and M with no problems. I'd use it again.

I took this for years and years, at least 10 years.Never had any problems. But I have high BP now and I have to have the mini pill.

I was on it with no problems. I could run 2 packs together without getting breakthrough bleeding which was great for controlling when I got my period.

Ah I'm feeling a bit more relaxed now! I like to occasionally run 2 packs together so I was hoping that that wouldn't be a problem. Fingers crossed I get on okay with it. Thanks everyone x

I also was on it for around 10 years and was a nightmare for missing pills and running two packs and the occasions 3 eek!

I used it for years with no problems, only came off it when started planning a family and would happily go back on it.

Thanks so much ladies. I really was starting to think that nobody had had a good experience with it. I'm so glad I posted on here now x
