Experience

I haven’t had a period even though I stopped taking Cerazette 8 months ago. I’ve had a few days of spotting. At first, the mini pill was so much better than combined pills. I still had excruciating pelvic pain, but it wasn’t as frequent as it was when I had used combined pills. I was also hungry all the time.

Experience after taking

Since stopping Cerazette, the pelvic pain has gone (I thought it was normal because I’d endured this for years!) and appetite is normal. I am a lot less emotional and stressed! However, my period hasn’t returned. It has been 8 months.

Had a similar experience?
