Experience

This pill was more a slow and gradual change in my mood and symptoms compared to others like cerazette. However, over the course of a year I gained weight, was generally more unhappy. I ended up having a very painful period once a fortnight for the first 3 months. This did calm down and it wasn’t an awful pill, but I still would rather stay off hormones.
