    Default Symptoms on the pill?

    I went back on the pill (levlen?) after being off it for 3 year (I have had two babies in this time) I never had any issues with the pill 1st time around but I have been back on it for 3 months and I get my period in the red section like normal but if that wasn't happening i would swear I was pregnant again (I have taken a test just incase) I have been emotional, nauseous all the time, sore boobs would all this be related to the pill? Anyone else had these sort of symptoms from the pill????

    Yes I had all those wonderful (horrible) symptoms on the pill, levlen ed and yasmin (Yasmin was even worse) it was progressively worse everytime I went back on them. Ditched hormones for good and got a copper iud.

    I had all the problems you described on levlen Ed and Yasmin as well. I was so paranoid I was pregnant as I had never had any side effects from these brands before my pregnancies. I ended up swapping to yaz which is a lower dose pill but you take it for a few extra days (shorter period). Worked a treat!

    Yep I was on Levlen for years and I had all of those awful symptoms plus weight gain. Honestly I wouldnt ever go back on the pill personally. Have you talked to your GP about other contraception methods? Maybe they could explain and discuss what the best contraception is for you?

    yup had all those on levlen! Ditched that one and am now on microgynon. Best ever. Its a bit mpore expensive but it the lowest oestrogen one you can get and its great!
