Experience

Had to stop this contraception for three months because I was crying all the time and moods were very low and was lashing out. Did not believe this was caused by cerelle but was recommended by a friend to take a break. Back on it now but don’t believe every low mood is caused by it, tempers are not as high but acne on side of face is starting
