Experience

Since I have endometriosis, my doctor put me on Cerazette after years of resisting hormonal pills but the last periods been so awful with blood in my stools that I thought to give Cerazette a try. And indeed it helped with the menstrual flow – I used to have a super heavy tsunami kinda periods and on Cerazette I had this brown spotting/very light period (only needed a menstrual towel 2 days, the rest 4 I used only panty liners). BUT the pain persisted as without pills, and I got severe acne on my bum/hip area 3 days after starting these pills; acne full face; severe fatigue, overall poor feeling of health; frequent headaches which I NEVER had before, nausea here and there and numbness, depro-anxiety. After reading these reviews I finally decided to come off this pill after 6 weeks of using it. Oh well. Shame it didn’t work with me but might work for others ?‍♀️
