Experience

I use Cerelle to stop my periods completely as I would experience terrible pains during my period and it would last between 7 – 10 days with very heavy bleeding. After taking Cerelle for about 3 months, my bleeding stopped completely and I haven’t had a period in over a year. However, I experienced bouts of depression when I first began taking this pill alongside migraines, tender breats, and I continue to have more acne than before I was on the pill (but this is a side effect of most progesterone only pills). I would recommend Cerelle for anyone like me who may want to stop their period for a certain length of time due to complications, but it is not a long term solution.
