Experience

I’ve been using cerelle for a bit over 3 months now. My mood and skin improved almost immediately but now I have very irregular periods, every 2 weeks, sometimes only few days in between and I would have another one. Another downside is that I gained a significant amount of weight even though there wasn’t any change in my diet. I went from 51 kg/ 8.0 stone to 56 kg/ 8.8 stone in just under 2 months. That’s waayy too much weight to pack on in this short period of time. I will probably stop using it due to the negative side effects outweighing the positive.
