Microgynon 30 Contraceptive Pill

By: Rex Inego | Apr 30, 2007 02:00 PM

i have been using microgynon 30 for 9 years. it was the first contraceptive given to me by my doctor and although i was offered the chance to change it, i never have. i started taking it when i was 16 and came off it when i was about 20 because my relationship was over and i wanted to give my body a break from it. started taking it again when i was 22 as i got into a new relationship.

Pros: well, no babies yet so i think its safe to say after 8 years that its doing its job well. bigger bust. lighter periods. less spots. get a bit grumpy still when i am due but pms is not nearly as bad as it used to be ;)

cons: gained a bit of weight but everyone actually says it looks good on me since i used to be a skinny size six. am now a slim but curvy 10-12. however a friend of mine went from a size 8 to an 18 on it and when my sister tried it she had a six month long period so i guess its all down to the individual, needless to say they are both using a different form of contraceptive now.

conclusion: i think it is a bit of an iffy one. i would recommend it wholeheartedly if it were only down to my own experiences but having seen other peoples reactions to it i would be wary of encouraging it completely. i would have to say give it a trial run as the problems i have seen are not serious and you can always change to another type. also to katie (22nd april) i read that you can miss up to two pills and it still works and also that you should worry if you are sick within two hours of taking it but since you were sick twelve hours after taking it you should be fine. however nothing is 100% so i would do a pregnancy test even if it is just o put your mind at ease x
