Me. I can’t take the combined pill because I suffer from migraines. Is there a reason not being able to go on the combined pill is upsetting you?

There are plenty of other options if you can’t use the combined pill.

^theres many other birth control options. there’s also many many women who aren’t allowed on it so you’re not alone. can i ask why you seem to be upset over it?

there are lots of different mini pills. and lots of other methods of birth control. if you’ve been on your current pill for more than six months and it’s not working for you then speak to your doctor about trying a new one.

I think it’s because the mini pill gave me some annoying side effects, and when I spoke to the doctor she said “you probably wouldn’t have those side effects on the combo pill but I won’t prescribe it to you because of your health” which made me think that I’d be so much better on the combined one :((

Try a different mini pill then, or the implant, hormonal IUD or the injection. Just because one mini pill gave you bad side effects it doesn’t mean every other method will too. You don’t know until you try.
