Experience

I’m sad to see this go. I was on this for 13/14 years with no issues. I would have breakthrough bleeding if I missed a dose but it would always be very light. As I’ve been on this pill since the age of 14 I got acne from the age of 18 which got worse in my 20s.. unfortunately I do think it was this pill but I got a topical cream from superdrug (prescription) earlier in march and its helped loads. About a year and a half ago I was put on cerelle (had no issues with this and was fine for 6 months) then since being put back on cerazette I’ve had a lot of bleeds, two of them being really heavy and since July this year I’ve been bleeding more than not bleeding :( having to try Cerelle again now. I found I only got spotting/light bleeding on this too if something emotional happened in my life but knew it would only be a couple of days… now is another story, sometimes its 3 weeks sometimes its 2 days. As I was 14 I cant comment on what kind of bleeding I had when I first started. I did also go onto the injection for a short time but hated it due to the weight gain, when I went back on cerazette I had no issues (but the injection stays in your body for a lot longer).
