Experience

When I first started taking Cerelle everything was brilliant, my periods stopped. However, I do get random periods here and there which last for roughly 5-6 days. When not having periods I still suffer with breast tenderness. My anxiety has improved drastically and my confidence has improved, even though I have gained weight. More recently I’ve been having terrible mood swings and a major decrease in my sex drive.
