My consultant has advised that my post op aftercare should include taking the pill to "shut down" my periods etc.
despite having the merina coil since march I still have horrendous periods.
I'm mid 20's and have never taken the pill before as I've always suffered from bad migraines.
I took the combined pill for two weeks, no periods and felt great, except I had one horrendous migrane where I lost my vision.
The doctors have now said I can never take the combined pill again for risk of stroke. So I have been put on Cerelle.
Within a week of taking Cerelle I was having the worst period which was so painful. I also noticed my mood completely drop. 4 weeks in and I'm just so sad and depressed all the time (even over christmas!)
My family and partner have all noticed and encouraged me to speak to the doctor and change my mini pill.
The doctor told me there wasn't another pill I could take and they would all do the same thing. She asleep advised me to stop taking the pill!
Has anyone else taken a different pill and have any to recomend as I dont believe my doctor!
