Experience

I started taking the Rigevidon comined pill but then started getting headaches so I changed to the Cerelle mini pill. I have been taking it now for 3 months and I haven’t had any headaches which is wonderful, although I’ve started crying a ton! This has really affected my everyday life which is the reason why I’m changing brand of mini pill. While I was on Cerelle my periods have never stopped, but that could be because I haven’t been taking it long enough for them to stop all together. I would get them at the end of a pack, and it’d last for 2 weeks each time which is quite annoying.
