Experience

I started with Cerazette for purely contraceptive purposes. In terms of physical health, its been great. No periods, effective contraception, no weight change/acne etc. However, I have found that my mental state has taken a significant turn while being on it. I found quite quickly after starting it, my mood was very low and anxiety became very high. I was previously a near fearless person, and my anxiety has been getting progressively worse the longer I have been on the pill. Alongside this, I find my brain to be ‘foggy’ almost always. I struggle to concentrate as a result. Changing contraceptive method ASAP.
