Experience

Granted that I’m still within the first 6 months of use, I have had irregular bleeding most of this time. However, my gp put me on cerelle to help with heavy painful periods and stress incontinence linked to the heavy periods and it has solved both of these issues. I tolerate this pill fairly well in terms of my moods and side effects pretty much non existent now. I’m also not pregnant, which is a win.
