Experience

I’ve been taking Cerelle for 7 or 8 years and they basically stopped my periods. I get some cramping and bloating occasionally and I probably have a very small brown bleed about once a year that doesn’t even last a full day. They’re very easy to take, I’ve only ever missed a couple of pills and for me personally, the side effects haven’t been that bad. Spots and acne are my worst side effect. I’m coming off the pill in December 2020 so it will be interesting to see how long it takes for the side effects to go away and my periods to come back.
