Experience

The only downside here are irregular periods – I normally have 3 a year. I can tell they are coming as I get standard (albeit light) PMS symptoms (mildly swollen / painful breasts) and then regular “having a period” symptoms – slight cramping on the first day. I was originally on Cerazette and my doctor switched me to Desogestrel without me feeling any change.
