Experience

Since my early teen years I started taking contraceptives due to heavy/irregular periods and relationship reasons. I started on the patch which didn’t work out for me that well as it caused vaginal dryness and constant thrush/water infections and so I was changed into Cerazette and after a while of taking this my skin became super inflamed and I now have severe painful acne – I have tried treating it topically and tried other medications to solve it but nothing has worked, I have been on Cerazatte for about 2 years and I’m currently transitioning to Millinette 20/75 which hopefully will be less intense than Cerazette.
