Cerelle is the best pill to go for in my opinion! no more periods (for me) and a great barrier for pregnancy! The only issues I would bring up were me putting weight on and getting some facial acne. I went through a phase of forgetting to take my pill which led to irregular bleeding and cramps, but once I began taking them regularly again the bleeding stopped completely and so did the cramps. I was offered other forms of contraception (implant, depo injection) but stuck to Cerelle because for me it works a treat! I know it can have different effects on different people but I can’t recommend it enough for someone thinking about going on contraception. I also have type 1 diabetes and it in no way has affect my sugar levels etc, so it is very cooperative with medical conditions. I would definitely suggest a trial of Cerelle, it was the best thing I ever did!!
