    Ive had no trouble at all with being on microgynon 30. I've been on it since I was 16 and I'm now 23. The only thing I'm worried about is being on it for so long! Sorry to hear all the problems people have been having finding the right one!

    I've heard that about microgynon too and migraines. I was taken off a pill once and put on the mini pill due to headaches, that was a long time ago though. I've been back on microgynon for just over two years and my dr is starting to make noises that he wants me off it. Apparently the risks increase once you get to 35, which I now am..... I have no idea where I go from here..... I am on it partly due to really heavy painful periods and I don't want to go back to those again. hope you can get it sorted x

    Interesting. I've been on microgynen for six months. I literally opened strip one of pack three last night, and threw it back up at three am (would love to know if it absorbed actually, as I can't remember the time frame- but I'd doubt it if I knew since my tea from about ten hours previously came up too). Sorry about TMI. Despite the fact that for the last couple of months I've had fluid retention headaches and been having to take water tablets as soon as my period rolls round (which still lasts about nine days- ie. I'm back on the pill and still bleeding) I hadn't connected that the pills could be causing it. I guess I'll observe how things go for a couple of months and mention it to my GP if need be. Sadly my body doesn't seem to like hormonal contraception- I seem to suffer MORE when tampered with :-(

    Does anyone have any experience with the implant Nexplanon and a loss of libido? Been on it for a year now after I was fed up of taking a pill every day and my sex-drive has been non-existant! Been wondering if thats why it is a contraceptive as it makes you not want to have sex

    I was on microgynon 30 for a year when I was 13 and it was honestly the worse pill I've been on. Loestrin was ok but my doctor said the oestrogen was affecting me so I've been put on mercilon which is an even lower pill but doesn't have oestrogen or progesterone in, it's one of those. My only problem is my periods are coming on late in my 7 day break on it. I've been on it for 3 months. This month I came off it on monday and today (saturday) my period has started. I'll be going back on the pill on monday and hope its off soon because I have an exam on tuesday :(

    So after only a week of being on Dianette, I've found it's a lot less forgiving when you miss a pill than femodine is. Also my chest hurts :( Always seems to after I change to a diff pill though.

    I had my implant replaced a couple of weeks ago. Wasn't as bad as I expected, but it took ages.

    I started the pill about 3 weeks ago. I like it so far because I started it mid-cycle and was able to postpone my period by a couple weeks.
    The only thing is, I think it's giving me headaches.
