I hope u are not planning to use OCs for non-contraceptive benefits only! Anyway since u ask i can let u know a couple of things my gynae told me..one was less blood loss in periods which indeed happened for me. less period pain, but i never had them anyway. protection agaimnst a couple of cancers, dont exactly remember which ones...lessening of premenstrual tension, which dint really hapeen in my case. Hope this helps!

Apart from the benefits mentioned above, your periods would become regular.

Me and my fiance have decide that we wont have kids for 2 years after our marriage. she told me that she will be fine if she uses oral contraceptives but i denied due to side-effects. i heard about this copper -t and i told her. so she is fine with it but is copper-t safe. can you also suggest me a good oral contraceptive pill, which will have less side effect and prevent 100% pregnancy

I have started using the Trigestrel oral contraceptive one week ago. It is the first time that I am using oral contraceptives. Since starting the active pills 3 days ago, I have been experiencing terrible tummy cramps, diarrhoea as well as nausea. My period, however, was normal, and a lot lighter than previously. I have seen many complaints for this product on the Internet, and I am therefore worried that it may not be the best option. Should I stop the pills, go back to the clinic, and ask for a different product, or should I endure the pain in the hope that the side effects will go away? Please help!
