Overall happy, minimal side effects other than complete loss of libido. Havent had a period for 4 years, took about a month or 2 for that to kick in. No acne no swelling no weight change no mood swings :) wanting to swap off bc of the libido issue and not remembering to take it on time every day but will swap back if alternatives don't work out

Lost half the hair on my head and diagnosed with alopecia areata. Had to wear a wig for 12-18 months. At no point did my doctor suggest stopping the pill. I only stopped the pill when I started experiencing mood swings. After stopping mood swings improved and hair re-grew completely. No similar issues since (10 years).

I went on the Cerazette mini pill after 6 months on the combined pill, which o had to stop due to migraines with aura. The migraines completely stopped with this pill (I was getting them fortnightly, now I’ve had one in 18 months). I first went on the pill to control my very painful periods - I was having intense back pain, leg pain, ovulation pain… you name it I had it! (Likely endometriosis). Cerazette has been life changing in that respect, allowing me to not have to live my life according to where in my cycle I am. The only downside is breakthrough bleeding - like a mini period that occurs randomly, a bit heavier than spotting but not as bad as a period (and nowhere near as painful). That’s why I give it 4 and not 5. I haven’t noticed any weight gain other than what would be normal going from age 17-20! My skin and moods have improved. Have a bit of anxiety anyway but not correlated to pill. You do have to make sure to take it at same time every day, if I’m a few hours late it triggers a breakthrough bleed. I hear so much hate on the pill but this pill has suited me. Really depends on the individual.

Im currently still on this pill and have been on it for around 5 months now, after this week I will no longer be taking this pill. When I first started taking this pill it was great I didn’t have as many problems on it for the first 3/4 months, however over the last 2 months I’ve had multiple panic attacks due to anxiety and I’m not happy anymore, I wouldn’t say I’m depressed but i know that I’m not as happy as I used to be. I’ve never suffered with anxiety or ever had a panic attack before until recently, I have nothing going on in my life currently that would cause this either. My periods are very irregular as-well, I could go a-few months without having one or I could have a period then a-few days later have another one. I’ve also found when brushing or even washing my hair a lot would fall out more then normal. However, everyone’s body’s are different and if you are thinking about using this pill then check with your doctor and try it , I’ve written this review for anyone that is in the same boat and needs reassurance and that there are other people having the same side affects.

I’ve been taking the mini pill for the last 17 months. As my doctor took me off the combined pill that I’d been on 13 years with no issue. As a contraception- it works. I noticed the first few months that it was playing havoc with my body. I kept getting thrush! Which I don’t usually suffer with. And then my hair started coming out. I lost a lot of hair, and as a hairdresser I know it was a concerning amount. My iron levels were down at the time so the doctor put it down to that. My bloods went back to normal but I was still loosing a considerable amount of hair. I naturally have thick long hair. And then my skin , my skin has never been so bad. My skin and my hair were my favourite things about myself and this pill effected both of them badly for me. I never get spots, but this caused acne all on my cheeks and jaw. My doctors now put me back on my combined pill which I’m so happy about!. I won’t be changing from that again!

I took this after my second child in 2019. And it wasnt until my husband thought I had postpartum depression that I realised that this really doesn’t agree with me. I struggled with my mental health, I felt sad and overwhelmed all the time. I didn’t have my normal drive to get things done or the patience to deal with the children.
