Hi There,

The progestogen only pill is a safe option for anyone who suffers with migraines or severe headaches. It is best to start it as the nurse described to you, use the pill for 3 months (as that's how much you are usually given), then when you go back to get your next supply talk through any symptoms you may have had, and the nurse can decide with you, if it's suiting you. You need to give any new method 3-4 months to settle and iron out any side effects before you switch brands/pills, as if you keep switching too quickly you will always be getting those early side effects. Hope that make sense?

Best Wishes
