Experience

My doctor recommended going on this pill due to my medical history as the other ones had greater risks that I could be affected by. When I first started taking the pill I had no period until about 2 months in where I bled for 2 weeks stopped for 2 days then bled for a week. This was an ongoing issue which has fortunately stopped! It stopped about 1-2 months after the first bleed, my periods are now regular or have stopped :) My overall experience with cerelle has been good, especially with my precious health issues (both mental and physical) I would 100% recommend this pill especially if you’ve got previous health issues be it mental or physical
