Experience

I have been on Zelleta for around 4 months – I have previously been on the depo provera injection and cerelle. I was advised to come off the injection by my doctor and was only offered Zeletta as I have migraines and can’t have the combined pill. Since starting it I have suffered with bad mood swings, as well as being over emotional at the smallest things. I will note that I also suffered these symptoms with the other contraceptives but do not believe it was as extreme. I do not have any periods however which is a positive- the same as when I was on the injection and cerelle.
