Experience

I have been using Cerelle for around 5 years, got put on it by my doctor after I started experiencing bad migraines. The main and most noticeable side effects for me have been a decrease in sex drive, irregular spotting (about once every 6 weeks), bad skin and constant tiredness, all of which I have just gotten used to. But I think those are side effects you can expect from any contraceptive pill!
