Experience

I was initially prescribed Cerelle for 3 months, which gave me no negative side effects and stopped my periods. Then the next 6 months were Cerazette, which negatively impacted my mental health and caused hair loss, so I have since stopped taking it.

Experience after taking

I stopped the pill due to side effects of bad mental health and hair loss. My mood has improved and I feel like a “brain fog” has cleared – I can concentrate better and feel more motivated/energised. My hair seems to be falling out less, and is growing faster.

Had a similar experience?
