Experience

Gutted that this pill has been discontinued and I now have to switch because it’s been a great pill for me. I have been taking Cilest happily for 7 years with very minimal side effects. I was previously on Yasmin which gave me terrible mood swings and when I switched to Cilest I felt like myself again, far happier and more positive and had such light periods i barely notice them. I had no change in hunger or weight and my skin remained clear. It has been an almost perfect pill for me. The only negatives are loss of sex drive and not being able take packs back to back without light spotting. I am now really nervous to have to switch and begin a new search for a pill that can live up to this one and will not mess up my hormone balance again!
