Experience

Stick to one brand when starting the minipill – my doctor changed my brand after 3 months and it completely changed my bleeding pattern. Cerelle affects everyone differently and unfortunately I’ve experienced very irregular bleeding but it is not a period (as informed by my doctor) so I am certain it is doing a good job at preventing pregnancy. Packaging is also pretty and discrete (comes with a little decorated cardboard case to keep the packet in).
