I've been on the pill for a few months now and i've already skipped two breaks consecutively (my pharmacist said that would be okay) i was mean to start a break today and was wondering if it would be okay to skip another break (i'm going on a mini break and dont want my periods while im away) Also if it is okay to skip a 3rd break consecutively there is no chemist open near by that i can get the pill from today so i would have to wait till tomorrow. So would it be okay to take two tomorrow to make up for missing it today? I'd really appreciate an answer back today/tonight so i can go straight into the next pack, thanks! :)

Hi I have been on Microlite now for almost 2 and half years. No probelms with it at all. But this week I have forgotten to take 3 days in a row of tablets. It was only 4 days into a new pack. Should I take the 3 I've forgotten to take altogether now? (Thurs - Sat) Or would that cause complications? The instruction booklet says nothing about missing more than 2 days tablets,(7 Day Rule etc). What should I do?

Hey just need a bit of advise! Been on Microlite with no trouble for about 12 years. I got sick with three days left to go on my pill (got sick sun night an pill pack finished wed.) I didnt realise when you were sick you are not meant to take a break in the pill if you cant take 7 pills after. Anyway I took the break and started back as normal. My question is do I need to use other protection or am i covered? I normally take the pill early in the morning so it was over 13 hours later when I was sick! ThanksKiss

Hi,

I'm pretty sure you have the option to not take the 7 day break from Microlite from time to time if you want - you just start the next pack the day after you finish the last one.

I did it a few times when I was on it and it was fine.

  I'm going on holidays on the 6th of June for a week. I have a prescription for Microlite but if I take it on the 1st day of my period I'll have my period on holidays(which i dont want!) My next period is due the 19th of May(without going on the pill) and I was just wondering is there any way I can take the pill without having my period on holiday! Also my period started today so it's too late to start during this cycle(I've a 4week cycle). Any advice would greatly be appreciated! 23-04-2009

I've been on Microlite for 7 months - I piled on an extra stone in weight within 2 months and generally feel hungrier and less up for exercise still. I also have been incredibly anxious for the past 6 months and have had very bad insomnia.

I'm prone to insomnia but usually only when my life is stressful - which it has not been for this past while - I'm madly in love with the man I started seeing in April and should be having the time of my life...instead I'm restless, unable to relax, don't always enjoy sex and get depressed randomly.

Would Yasmin be a better bet for me? or any other brand of pill? I know Microlite is low dosage so I don't know where to go apart from quitting and then I'd have to worry about pregnancy all the time!

My doctor gave me no indication these side effects were possible and yet I've read countless reports online from women who suffer all sorts on various pills... I get the impression doctors know very little about women and their hormones.

If anyone has any advice on Yasmin I'd appreciate it.

Hi im new to all this. Ive been on the microlite pill for over a year now and so far ive found it great! But i was just wondering how people find it as a method of contraception? has it worked for you and do you trust it? I really dont want any babies yet as im only 17 but ive been having sex with my boyfriend for about 2 months now without using a condom and *touch wood* it has worked for me. Id just like to know people's opinion.

Thanks,

FoxcRoxc xxx

I've been on Microlite for 4 years I had to start it from a young age to regulate my period, recently I gave myself a break from the contraceptive as it is advised, but I'm not sure for what reason.
Anyway to get to my point, when I came off the microlite and I noticed that straight away I was much chirpier and happy, no mood swings, crankiness, and no loosing the head at people for no reason. I decided it was time to resume taking the contraceptive after two months. almost straight away, on my second day of taking Microlite again my mood swings began. I also put on half a stone! I had no reason for feeling that way so I guess it was down to the pill. I realise that i should try a different form of contraceptive or brand of pill, but I dont want to change from what im used to. Has anyone advice on other methods?

hi

i was on microlite for 3 months and ive gained 1 stone.ive always been cautious about my weight. ive had very bad mood swings and super low sex drive and my bf thinks there is something wrong with us but there isnt. we couldnt be great and it sends me into depression and simplest things get to me which never use to happen before so im not going to start my next pack of microlite. does anyone think i should say it to my doctor or go it alone. i also suffered from very bad migraines from it, ones that even woke me up during the night. HELP

I was on nora-be contraceptives and i have been having a lot of mood swings with this pill so I am about to try microlite. they both have the same combination of the same hormones and i heard good things about microlite. please comment, i also have kidney problems, not major ones though.

I was on Microlite for less than a month and I got terrible acne on my skin. I had never had a problem bad skin before this at all but now, 3 years later I still have a scar on one part of my cheek (though not noticable to others it is to me) from the acne. It got really bad and was sore and swollen. I was on Femodene for ages which was brilliant but that's just been taken off the market for not making enough money (it was so cheap!). So now I'm starting on Yasmin, I hear it's great.

Yes, I have been on the same pills as you for the same reasons. When the changed me to microlite and had bad headaches and I was always in bad humor so I stopped taking it after 3 months and went onto Yasmin and I haven't looked back. Yasmin is supposed to be the best pill to balance with your hormones i find it grand.

I was on the pill Overnette but have been advised by my chemist that I have to go to the doctor to change to a new pill as they are no longer stocking this one - The doctor has put me on Microlite - Is anyone on this and can someone tell what this one is like - I was on Microgyon 30 + Overnette and never had a problem on either.
