Experience

This was the worst few months of my life, after being swapped from Cilest to this I can say it was absolutely awful! I would have Heavy bleeding ever few days, especially during sex it would cause heavy bleeding that would last a few hours then just stop. My periods became irregular and my mood was at an all time low. I went to the doctor who told me it would not be the pill however upon speaking to a nurse who specialises in contraception she told me that although it’s the same as cilest different brands can cause different reactions. I would not recommend this to anyone.
