I was on microgynon for most of my teenage years however after a long break and 1 migraine in a three year period the doctor refuses to put me back on microgynon. Reason being that one migraine.

I have a 6 month supply still In date from before, can I just take this

I wouldn’t. There’s an increased risk of having a stroke if you get a certain type migraines (which I’m assuming you do because your GP won’t prescribe it).

I wouldn’t take that stuff again even if I was paid. I took it in my early twenties and caused me severe depression. I had moments where I just didn’t want to get up and within a week of stopping taking it I was back to my normal self. Never again!
