Minerva is a contraceptive like any of the other Pills. It has the added benefit of helping with acne. It is not recommended for general contraceptive use though as it has higher oestrogen content. The effect of the Pill on libido varies form person to person rather than with the specific Pill.

Hi everyone. I have been on Diane35 and Yazmin for my skin though but it never got better.. And the pills used to make me feel sick .. My Dr recommended Minerva and I just want to make sure it'll help with my skin before I waste my money?

Does minerva make you more fertile when you first start taking it?

hi,

I`ve been on Minerva for almost 5 years now. It was prescribed to me by a doctor for my skin problems. Before I got married I went to see a doctor again and she told me that Minverva is a contraceptive pill and I can continue with it. More than one doctor have told me that Minerva is contraceptive, so don`t worry! Hope it helps
