Experience

Was on the cerazette pill for about 5 years before falling pregnant and had no problems whatsoever. After I had my baby, I went to the doctors to be placed back on the same pill, I was told they no longer prescribe cerazette and have replaced it with this one called cerelle. I was on this pill for 6 weeks and I had to take myself off of it. My mood swings were horrendous, I was crying most days over silly little things! I couldn’t stand my partner and I always thought he wasn’t doing anything for me and the baby. I’ve been off cerelle for a week now, and my whole life has done a complete U turn. I’m back to my happy loving self, I cannot get enough of my partner and I realise now he goes to the ends of the earth for me and his son. Now to find another one that actually works ?

Experience after taking

Completely back to myself again and I couldn’t be happier. Back to loving my partner, and I enjoy spending time with him again rather than being angry and upset at everything he does.
