Experience

Have been taking cereals for about 4 years as my periods were heavy and painful. Although I’ve not had a period since taking the pill, which has been great. Over this time I’ve put on weight, been bloated, lost interest in sex, body hair growing so fast. Lots of test by the doctors but nothing showing as wrong or causing all this other than the pill. I’ve decide to stop taking cerelle for the time being to see how I feel without it.
