Experience

Horrible. Only went on this pill as cerazzete wasn’t available in Australia where I moved to. Irregular periods, sore boobs, heavy heavy cramping and mood swings. It also brought my hormonal acne back with a vengeance.

Experience after taking

Having been on various pills for about 8 years, I honestly didn’t know what my cycle would be like on no pill. Within 2 months, periods regular, almost exactly 5 days in 28. Mood swings gone, acne getting clearer by the day. Best thing I ever did was come off this pill. Still looking for an alternative birth control though!
