Experience

I’ve used Cerazette for 5+ years, originally taking it because of pretty heavy/very painful periods. After two months of taking it its stopped my periods all together. I only have a period if I run out and forget to reorder etc but I have around 6 days before I’ll come on. I’ve been taking it that long I can’t tell if the weight gain is me or the pill, probably both! It works well for me though, evens out my hormones and I don’t feel it alters my mood. If anything it does positively so because I’m not getting a period.
