Experience

I was on cilest for 9 years with zero side negative side effects. I didn’t think twice about my mood or weight gain. It’s not until they changed me to lizinna after cilest was discontinued I realised how great it was for me. I gained weight with Lizinna and my mood was at an all time low. I’m not on any contraception as I’m terrified to experience negative side effects again.
