Experience

I’ve been taking Cilest on and off now for a few years. It has its problems but it is better for me than microgynin(not sure on the spelling) that I was initially given that gave me awful mood swings. I now only notice bad mood swings on cilest when I take the 7 days off the pill. I have recently been told that they no longer making cilest though so will once again have to find another suitable contraception for myself.
