Experience

I recently left a review stating that Norgeston might be ‘the one’ but since then I’ve had to stop taking it due to awful indigestion/ heartburn/ acid reflux. It’s daily and started when I started taking Norgeston and also happened with Cerelle a while back. Even after stopping taking it, it hasn’t gone away… Also my moods were awful. I felt numb and annoyed at everything/ everyone. Developed a complex of always being right. Hated this pill in comparison to low dose combined but I’m not allowed to take that because of migraine with aura.
