I don't know if i'll be able to take it because of the progesterone, i think that was the main thing in the implanon i had and i bleed all the time, maybe in pill form it won't be so bad?
does the regular pill have any leway time? i don't think it does, i wouldn't want to use the leway time but in case of emergencies it's nice to know iykwim.

ye the implant is the same hormones as the mini pill...it is worth a try though cause they all react differently in the body. ive heard that a few people have problems with bleeding on progesterone only contraceptives. however at least if you do bleed constantly on the pill its a lot easier to stop taking than having the implant taken out.

ive never came across anything that suggests the combined pill has any leeway time tbh. so im not entirely sure. (the problem for me is i get bad migraines with aura so i cant go on anything which contains oestrogen )

i try my best to take it as the same time everyday, but its great to know that if i take it a few hours late im still protected xx

very true! maybe in pill form it won't be as bad, and if it is i can stop taking it. I don't think my body has any issues with estrogen, maybe just the progesterone, but if it maybe also has to due with how it is taken i might be able to do the mini pill because so far it sounds pretty good to me.
thank you so much for all your help, it's nice to have some newer options brought up that i wouldn't traditionally think of on my own lol

your more than welcome huni...just talk it all over with your GP or nurse and ask them if they feel the mini pill will be suitable for you.

good luck with changing your bc...let me know how you get on! xx

Hi, i was on a normal combined pill called femodette until recently and used to take microgynon30 both have a 12 hour window (you should try to take on time but its ok if you dont). I tried cerazette the mini pill but had break through bleeds as the progesterone only isn't strong enough to stop this for some people x

I agree with MissKM that the minipill can be great- I'm also in the lucky group of people who don't get periods with it- though some people bleed loads. I'm on a different version- micronor (cerazette gave me bad headaches), so only have the 3hr window. I've never really had a problem taking the pill, so not an issue for me. One thing I do which helps, though, is keep the packet at the top of my underwear drawer, so every morning without fail I have to see it, and therefore take it...
