Experience

Cerelle has been great in terms of a contraceptive and I also had heavy periods before hand which really crippled me. They made me exhausted, gave me really bad stomach cramps and effected my work so I was very glad that stopped. However, my anxiety has increased since taking cerelle. I couldn’t say that it is the cause but it feels like a factor. I have also gained weight but again I feel like it might be a small factor than the cause.
