desogestrel (0,075MG) for Contraception / birth control
I was on this pill for around 11 months. Side effects to begin with weren't too bad, a few headaches here and there and some slight bloating and slight weight gain. Weight evened back out after 3 months.
I had 2 periods for the duration of taking these pills and both times were very light and lasted 3 or 4 days.
6 months into taking these, I developed a post nasal drip, I'm not sure if this was linked to the pill but I have never had issues with my nose until taking this medicine. I have now stopped taking this pill and it's begging to clear up slowly.
Other than that, it's a good pill, compared to things like Microgynon which gave me insane headaches and mental health problems years ago.
