Experience

I’ve been taking Cerazette for around ten years after I reacted poorly to the combined pill, as well as my history of migraines. I have had a great experience using Cerazette, with no notable mood changes or weight gain. The only negative side effect for me has been severe acne, which can be widespread and highly visible at times – something to consider as I’m 32, therefore not the prime age for acne. Compared to some of the alternative contraceptives I’ve tried, however, this pill has very few side effects for me. I did have spotting for a few months at first, but now I very rarely have periods (if I do, they’re very light but can last a month or more).
