Experience

The only benefit of cerezette for me was stopping my awful heavy periods. I didn’t have a period at all. But I gained HUGE amount of weight with no other lifestyle factor changing. I was very very emotional, like constant PMS. In the end I had to come off it as I couldn’t face it anymore.

Experience after taking

Since stopping cerezette my period cycle still hasn’t returned back to normal which is quite stressful (I’ve not had a proper period yet – negative pregnancy test of course so it’s definitely effect of the pill) My moods improved and my weight isn’t increasing.

Had a similar experience?
