How/if to come off the mini pill? I was on NuvaRing for a few months (starting about October 2021) and had bad side effects like massive mood swings, painful intercourse, irritation because of the ring, and bloating. I switched to the mini pill (Cerelle desogestrel) and these problems went away, but I’ve started getting really dizzy and nauseous a lot. I’ve tried diet changes, more exercise, I sleep enough… I’m also bleeding almost every week non-stop. I’ve been getting a bit short of breath and finding even short runs are getting difficult when I used to run 10k regularly. I’ve been on the new pill for long enough to adjust. Does anyone know the best way or resources on how to come off of the pill for a couple of months to see if these symptoms go away, and then get back on it if nothing changes? I’m keen to stay on this brand as I’ve had no other side effects but just want to see whether they go away as the dizziness and problems with exercise are really frustrating (I do sports competitively!) Thank you for any help, sorry about the long info paragraph :) ⚠️💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊⚠️💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊 Brand: Cerelle

I would speak to your doctor as it could potentially be unrelated to the pill

^ I would recommend seeing a doctor and getting a check up. Have you had covid or the flu recently?

I had covid in summer 2021 and this Feb (triple vax as well). It’s just because the problems started up around the same time I started taking the pill. I’ll call the doctor but kind of worried they’ll just dismiss it as normal side effects or anxiety or something esp as I’m a young woman and it’s not any serious health problems.
