Experience

I had used Cerazette previously and experienced similar negative symptoms so stopped and started to us Noriday (Norethisterone) which was much better. Unfortunately there is a manufacturing issue making it impossible for me to find Noriday. I tried nothing but my periods are extremely heavy and painful so in desperation I returned to Cerazette hoping not to suffer the same side effects. No! No periods great, but I am depressed in mood a lot of the time, crying, angry and easily irritated, I have headaches sometimes migraines and so I will have to stop and bear my periods until Noriday is available again.
