Experience

I’ve been on cerelle for about 3 years, with a 6 month break in between. I was put on this pill as I was experiencing migraines with the combined pill and have never had any since. I don’t get a period which is a real positive for me, however, I do believe it has an effect on my mood as I don’t experience emotions to the extreme as normal, never get too low or too high. Whilst I’ve never had any physical side effects such as acne or weight gain I am aware of the mental effects as I have become increasingly anxious over the past few years and I do think it is possible this is linked to the pill.
