Experience

Cerelle has unfortunately ruined my life under a very small amount of time. I suffer with anxiety and panic attacks and Cerelle put me in a constant state of panic and heart palpitations. My circumstances at the time were not bad enough to cause panic attacks, and as soon as i came off the pill the constant state of panic disappeared completely. Furthermore, I had a mini period 2 weeks after each period, that came with cramps and spotting/bleeding. It was AWFUL.

Experience after taking

I stopped right on my period and got my next (and first off-pill) period 27 days after. I notice I have a lot of ovulation pain and discharge since i stopped taking the pill. I lost about 6-8 lbs also.
