Experience

I was on Cerazette for about 8 years after coming off Microgynon. For the majority of the time I didn’t notice any issues but for the last year or so of taking it, my mood and weight started to become noticeably worse and my boobs starting hurting a lot! Maybe I was just on it for too long but I’ve now come off it and feeling much better!

Experience after taking

On the whole I’m feeling much better and mood has definitely stabilised. I’m now trying the natural cycles app to give my body a break from hormone contraceptives for a while.
