Experience

Was put on cerazette after PCOS diagnosis. Worst cramps imaginable, couldn’t move. Awful headaches. Constant heavy bleeding, was soaking through night time pads every 20 minutes. Nearly had to go to hospital, was left with severe anemia for months after taking it. Went back on combined pill and I was fine.
