    Default which contraceptive pill are you on?

    Bit stuck with which contraceptive pill to go on.

    what's the difference between a progesterone pill and one with combined progesterone and estrogen (sp?)..?

    I take Loette. I believe it's a 'low dose' pill.

    I haven't found it has any crazy side effects or anything, so it's pretty easy on the body.

    I have to be rigid about taking it the same time every day though, otherwise I can get breakthrough bleeding that lasts a couple of weeks. Not cool!

    I'm on Diane for PCOS. It's excellent!

    FYI - read this news story the other day regarding the safety of the Diane contraceptive pill:

    http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/hea...-1226571159895

    I was on it for a number of years from my late teens to treat hormonal acne - worked a treat, but glad I'm not on it anymore (even though I think banning it because of four deaths over 25yrs does seem a little excessive - I'm sure there are many other medications on the market that are worse).
