What users say

I ended up trying 3 or 4 different mini pills and this was the best one for me . plus when i came off coz we wanted to conceive it only took me 2 weeks to get pregnant!

I get on fine with Norgeston its just sometimes it can be hard to always take it within the same 3 hour window so if you dont have a good routine or are a bit unorganised this probably not the pill for you.
