Desogestrel 75mg pill

Ellejay99 profile image

I have been taking the desogestrel 75mg pill for about a year now and periods have been all over the place which I'm fine with as the are usually not heavy and for no more than a week. But this month i have been on for about 3 weeks and was wondering if anyone else has experienced this or is it weird?

Unscheduled bleeding is a common side effect of the POP. I'm presuming, smears, chlamydia testing are up to date ?

Im only 20, smears not due for years yet. And definitely no chlamydia.

I was like that for the first few months, your body does get used to it. I get quite frequent spotting whenever it feels like it, but its barely enough for a pad. Give it a few months and if your still having problems with it then you can switch to something different.
