    Default Cost effective 'The Pill'

    I am going to the Dr today to see about going on the pill. The last time I got the pill, the Dr at the time gave me the most expensive one on the market, and I couldn't afford to keep up with it. Can someone please recommend a few different types of the pill, that are cheap, yet work well? I used to use marvelon at one point, but that was expensive for me.

    I am on trifeme I think which a generic brand. I think it's $16 for a box which has 4x4 weeks in the box.

    I currently take Microlut, which is quite inexpensive BUT it is a mini pill.

    Avoid Diane - it's really pricey. Previously I look Loette for a few years and I found it to be a good effective pill - it's cheaper if you get the generic version.

    I've taken trifeme in the past - it did take a few months to get used to it though (nausea, moody and hormonal).

    I just read up on trifeme and a few people said nausea and a bad mood swings were common. I might avoid this one, as I'm already a 8itch 😂

    Perhaps I might ask about levlen. I remember I was on that as a kid (due to AF problems, not being a slapper!)

    Default Cost effective 'The Pill'

    I was once on monofem (that may be spelt incorrectly). From memory it was $12-14 for 3-4 month supply.

    Eta- it's one of the lower doses in comparison. I didn't have any side effects. Hope this helps

    I remember on the trifeme I would burst into tears over insignificant things (and I'm not normally like that). Once I cried whilst I was out driving because I had to wait for a fire engine to reverse out of the fire station

    I do recommend Loette, but when you get the script filled at the chemist ask for the generic brand. It's about $35 for 3 months for the regular Loette.

    Oh dear that does sound bad! If I was on it, I can already foresee that I would burst into tears if Dr Phil was running late on telly hahahaha.

    Thanks I'll ask my GP about it. I always get the generics, because I'm a tight **** and can't justify wasting money on basically the same thing lol.

    I have found trifeme much more tolerable than the mini pill. I was crazy on that.

    Mmmhmm! Hell yes. And the mini pill makes me eat like I'm never going to get a good meal again.
