Experience

I was originally on Loestrin ever since the age of 16 and randomly my periods stopped on that after a while, then after years they randomly came back and then I started getting severe migraines. I was changed to Cerelle and my head within a day or two felt clearer and I haven’t had a migraine at all! My periods totally stopped, however I my breasts have grown quite a bit and I have had some strange pain on one nipple at first, which eventually went away, but now I get nipple discharge if it rubs on clothing or is pressed too much! I have also gone from having TONNES of discharge on the Loestrin, to VERY dry and itchy on the Cerelle.
