    No - but I did have to try a few different pills before I found one that didn't have nasty side effects. And I came pretty close to having t get a new one again after going back on the pill after having the DSs.

    I have been told that after you start fresh, you need to have it for 7 consecutive days (and with the mini pill, it needs to be at the same time every day). And thing that "interrupts" it, like antibiotics, gastro, etc - you again need 7 active days before doing the horizontal lambada of joy.

    But the non-active pill days don't interrupt

    Yes, I always had nausea when I started a new type of pill. Usually went away after a few days though.

    Ask your GP to recommend some other pills - different pills are based on different hormones, and can affect your body differently.

    The standard ones (Levlan, Microgynon, etc) just messed me around too much. So I ended up on another one, with a different key hormone thingie, and it's a perfect match. But I probably tried 4 or 5 different ones over the first few years ...

    Good luck!
