Experience

I’ve been on the Cerelle pill for about a year now. This pill was my first contraception, and due to availability issues I’m being changed to Desomono – which I’m not excited for! This pill has given me worse skin than before, but I have no periods, and rather than worsening my mood the pill regulates it so if I’m really sad when I take it, that’ll change shortly and my mood will either be neutral or opposite (happy). In my opinion, this pill is probably the most reliable and if you’re considering this brand, it’s worked so well for me. :)
