Experience

I was put on Cerelle after a terrible experience on Gedarel where I was crying daily. Moods have been stabilised, boobs are bigger (a positive for me!) and there aren’t any noticeable other side affects apart from loss of sex drive. Like COMPLETE loss, to the point I could go without it indefinitely – I feel little passion or desire. This is now starting to really affect my relationship so am thinking of taking a break from this pill, as it is getting me down.
