Experience

After coming off the implant for medical reasons I tried 5/6 different brands of combined pill. All were a disaster with horrible side effects the worst being the constant nausea. The stronger the oestrogen content the worse it was. Moving onto the Cerezette mini pill was a great relief. The side effects have dramatically reduced and my periods are infrequent and light though a little unpredictable. It seems to be a much better fit for my body.
