    It gave me permanent pmt - tired, miserable and emotional all the time. My periods were normal otherwise.could it be because it is still settling down? I've had coil fitted and periods are all over the shop but they did warn me i needed to give it 3-6 months

    I got put on it after having amy and it made me a nightmare to live with. Constantly unhappy, snapping at everyone. I went back to the doc and they changed it to another one, which still hasn't agreed with me, so I give up! lol! NTNP for us now!

    Serious PMT and depression. Was horrible. I also think its what contributed to us taking 13 month to conceive. Totally messed my cycles up.

    Which pill are you on? I was on cerazette for years and when I first started I spotted for about 6 months but then I had no periods for years.
    I'm now on miconor and its fantastic for me - no side effects at all :happydance:

    By spotting I mean I just bled all the time, not enough to need a tampon but I always needed a panty liner (tmi sorry). SO really light bleeding but it was really annoying and put OH right off :( It did calm down eventually but I thought it would never end x

    Iv just started femulen and i had only 25 days between my AFs start of bleed to start of bleed! i havnt been a moody cow yet but im on anti-depressents for PND eny way so not sure if they are covering it!! Im really worried about being on it as it took ages to concive my bubs (4yrs) with other complecations aswell but docs dont really care about that!
    So im going to see how it goes if i carry on with irregular AFs ill stop it! there are so many types of pill out there.

    im on cerazette and i spot quite a bit, a few days nothing- then a few days spotting. it's very annoying, need to wear a pantyliner everyday just in case.

    From what I remember (its 12yr ago lol) I didnt have one for a while but I BF'd for 11wks so that may have been a factor. I know I was a complete bitch though moods up n down all over.

    I was on cerezette for two years before having lo, had on and off bleeding for the first couple of months then nothing until after having my little girl, I didn't even have a period before falling pregnant! Have just starting taking it again and am on my second packet and have had two bleeds but nothing for about two weeks so hopefully thats it now.
