First of all, thank you so much in advance for your guidance!
I’ve taking the pill for about 9 years now (0,10 mg Levonorgestrel /0,20 mg Ethinylestradiol) with no side effects I’ve recently moved to the UK, so I’ve been trying to find an equivalent (although I’ve only found the 0,15 mg/0,30mg option). However, I have to admit this is the first time I’ve been doing proper research on my options.
I came across SH:24 and I took the suitablity test. The result shows that I’m actually not suitable for the combined pill (my BMI is over 35 and I had the gallbladder removed on 2016, as I had gallstones) and one of my gynecologist in Germany once suggested I should consider another contraceptive option because of the risk of thrombosis. I really didn’t understand much about this.
To be honest, due to the coronavirus crisis, I feel like this “problem” isn’t as important as other people’s problems, so I’ve been hesitant to contact my GP. That’s why I’m glad I found this forum.
Would you recommend switching to the progestogen only pill?
Thank you so much, @Dr_Paula for your time and advise!
I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
All the best,
