In the beginning, I thought I got lucky with this pill as although my periods were regular and light before, made them come every two months. I'm not sure whether it's circumstantial or the pill but after about 6 months I started to feel very depressed and couldn't shift this feeling of emptiness. I also lost my sex drive completely and became unbothered about everything and everyone. I wish more non-hormonal birth control was available other than the coil. I'm starting a different kind of progesterone-only pill today so hopefully it goes better than this did.

Started with cerazette for first 6 months and now on zelletts 7 months in. Had spotting randomly for around 4.5 months, the first 3 months were hardest with what seemed like 2 periods a month! This is my 3rd time being on this pill and it hasn't stopped my periods (it did the 1st and 2nd time around). I'm 31 and have pcos, I found this pill does decrease libido slightly and low mood. However I take mood stabilisers and inositol alongside it (not at the same time), so perhaps helps a little with low mood. I also have pmdd and find that it's not changed that but the mood stabiliser have over time. Although my periods are regular after 4.5 months, they are still heavy bur for first 2 days now, with less cramps. I'm not sure why I still get periods when I didnt before but it does help to know I'm not pregnant, considering mood stabilisers can reduce the efficency of oral contraception. I would recommend this pill, it never changed my weight and the decrease in libido works well for me, given I have a high drive prob just crave it like a regular person now lol. P.S Patience is a must with this pill but I do find it worth it.

I went on this pill because I get migraines with aura, so can’t have the combined pill any more after being on Microgynon for years and having no major issues. I had some headaches to start with on this pill while I got used to it. Cerazette was okay, it stopped my period for the most part (got a v light period with intense cramps every 4 months or so), and it didn’t affect my sex drive. However my boobs hurt every month and periodically, despite not getting a period. My nipples literally felt like razors!! And the vaginal dryness was not fun. I’ve been lucky that I’ve never had bad skin but it was really greasy when I started Cerazette and I noticed more hormonal spots around my chin that wouldn’t ever really go. I definitely feel like I was bloated a lot more and noticed some weight gain but this could have been down to my lifestyle at the time - was going out and not always looking after myself in terms of what I ate and drank. I’ve always suffered from brain fog (thanks ADHD and depression), so it’s hard to say if Cerazette also had an affect on this, but I definitely had mood swings for the first few months of being on this pill. The highs were high and the lows were low for 3-4 months.
