Posting for traffic - contraception

(6 Posts)

I know I am being V unreasonable for posting here - but the traffic that this page gets is phenomenal so I’m hoping for some advice.

I’ve been prescribed Gedarel but I don’t seem to be getting on with it. No idea why as I was on Marvelon for year before. I was thinking is switching to Yasmin but last night read some horror stories (including one women who went blind from taking it due to a blood clot!)

Does anyone have positive/negatives about these two pills? Should I just stay on the Gedarel?

I was on yasmin when I was younger, I think
It's been withdrawn now?

I get on best with the mini pill.

It has - but I think you can buy it online, Superdrug has them. Does the mini pill have many side effects?

I wouldn't buy it online when it's not considered safe anymore.

I didn't have any bad effects from mini pill, my skin was great, mood fine and I didn't bleed at all whilst on it.

Why on earth would you consider buying something online that is no longer considered safe when you have other options? That makes no sense?

How long have you been on Gedarel?
