Ovral 21

I have been using Nordette for six months - then somehow I forgot to take it for a week, in that week I felt so good, I was happy and cheeful - I only realised the change when I started taking the pill again. So I told my clinic about this, they could not really help me and I left with 3 months worth of Ovral... now I am not to sure if the high Progestogen level will be a good thing. I have done internet research but it all ends up confusing me more.

Just for some background - before I used Nordette I was on Marvelon which gave me brown spots on my forehead (still there!). When I was younger I used Triphasil and gained 10kg. I have also had a loop 2x with horrible side affects. Only pills left are Microval and Biphasil and offcourse the Ovral which I will start taking tomorrow after my period has end. I have also been on Cilift for 7 years counting.

Hallo Dezi
Progesterone only containing pills like Ovral can also cause mood changes (can worsen depression) and using a low dose combined contraceptive may be a better choice.
