Experience

I switched to Cerelle after being told I have high blood pressure and shouldn’t take the combined pill any more ( I also tried another mini pill which made me feel horrendous!) I found this pill to be the best for me, I get no periods (I had one small one 5 months after starting it but never one since), no spotting, no headaches or back pain, no tender breasts, barely any nausea especially compared to other pills, and it’s generally stabilised my mood and I feel happier and less anxious than when I’ve been on other pills.
