Experience

In the 6 months I have been taking cerazette I’ve had 2 periods; one in the first month and one in the 5th. Both of these have been light but have gone on for about 2 weeks. I don’t love the unpredictable nature of this and the prolonged bleeding but for me having infrequent periods is an improvement on my natural cycle where I’d bleed heavily every 3 weeks. Otherwise I’m happy with this pill, slightly worse skin however nothing I can’t handle. Hopefully the longer I take it the bleeding will settle as many others have said.
