Experience

I took Cilest for around & years, and I never experienced any side effects except for lighter periods. I was really pleased with this contraception and only stopped taking it to get a Mirena coil so that I didn’t have to remember to take a tablet every day.

Experience after taking

My periods returned to being a little heavier, as they had been before I started taking it, however I then had a coil fitted and they went away entirely!

Had a similar experience?
