Experience

Took me over a few years to get the correct pill and I have been on Cilest for nearly 6/7 years now. To start it was good however over the past few years I notice that every time I have my pill free week I get really bad headaches/migraines. These can floor me. I have also lost some of my sex drive also but didn’t realise that this may be down to the pill until I read your review.
