Experience

I was taken off the combined pill because I suffer from migraines and I wish I hadn’t mentioned that to the GP. I’m on my third mini-pill still trying to find one that works. Cerazette was the first one and by far the worst. The acne, I can’t describe how awful it was. There was no make up that could cover it, never in my 36 years I dealt with such poor skin. I spent a fortune in mitigating treatments but nothing would help, the spots would keep on coming relentlessly and it was constant. I stopped taking this pill 4 months in. Other than that it was ok, no weight gain, very irregular and light bleeding – I think I only had one period in 4 months and it was 3 light days. Loss of sex drive but that’s any pill for me anyway.
