Yes me. In the same, was switched from mycrogynon 30. The first 2 months were awful, I felt ill all the time, headache, sick etc had period pains all month and spotted a lot, my period was really heavy. I went back to the doctor and he told me to give it 3 months, and by month 3 everything had settled down. I've been on it 9 months now and have no problems with it anymore.

Well I had read it can take your body 3 months to adapt to any new contraception, and the doctor also said 3 months. I wouldn't put up with bad side effects for more than that personally.

I simply had a nightmare with it for about a year. I was bleeding every second week. It's a cheaper version of microgynon apparantly and has the same active ingredient. Everything was fine when I took a pack of microgynon. So I demanded to be put back on it.
