I have been on some form of contraceptive pill for nearly 10 years now. Everything was fine until about 1 year ago when I started to spot on my pill (I was on Microgynon 30 at the time). I changed to Gedarel 20 and still had the same symptoms, and then I changed onto Gedarel 30 (Drs thought i needed a higher dosage of oestrogen) but the spotting continued!! I have recently changed onto the progesterone only pill (Desogestrel) and it was great for the first month (no spotting at all) but as I came to the end of my first pack I’ve started spotting again and sometimes it’s quite heavy spotting (so much that I have to wear a menstrual cup).
Has anyone else had the same experience? I have been told by my Dr to persevere with the Progesterone only pill for 3 months but I’m wondering what other options I may have!
Thanks in advance!!
