Experience

I used Cerazette for about 4 months. I enjoyed having lighter periods without the agonising cramp I previously had, but I stopped using it due to intervals of unpredictable spotting and weight gain.

Experience after taking

I felt happier in general, but I went back to having terrible period cramps. Before taking the mini pill I had quite an irregular period, but after my period had returned after taking it, it stabilised my periods.

Had a similar experience?
