Experience

I was on Cerazette for three months, the first month was really positive, I experience low moods and a loss of sex drive but nothing too terrible. However the two months after were awful, I experienced pretty much constant bleeding. Pretty much 7 days period, 2 days spotting and then back to 7 days period. It made me so tired and low that I had to come off. If it wasn’t for the bleeding it would’ve been fine.
