Experience

I had Cilest for a long time. I had struggled with other forms of the pill and their side effects. The side effects of Cilest felt stable, so I decided to stick with it. Looking back, the most major side effects were weight gain, depression and loss of libido. Also noticed I got more headaches and migraines on Cilest

Experience after taking

After I stopped using Cilest it was like a miracle in my body. My moods felt so much better, my depression just lifted like when the clouds clear and the sun burns through. I was able to lose weight SO easily having gained 30kg over the 5 years I was on Cilest (although have since started on cilique and have gained some weight again). And my sex drive went crazy!
