For about 5 years this was perfect. It worked and cleared up my acne as suggested it might. I had no major issue until about 5-6 year in when I started getting awful migraines. It took a few years to work out that it always happened on the 7 day "off week". I was suggested to run the packs together but then I would just get continuous spotting and cramps. In the end I had to stop taking it as the migraines would knock me out for 2-3 days every month. Haven't had them since I stopped taking it. I also had cystitis and thrush many times when taking it and since I stopped, the occurances of both have stopped too. Maybe coincidence but perhaps not!

I changed to this pill from Microgynon and as soon as I changed I noticed a huge change in my mental health, feeling extremely anxious and emotional. Stopped my periods but instead, spotting most days which is a extremely annoying. I wouldn’t recommend this pill.

Overall this pill hugely effected my mood from one minute being mind blown angry, to the next crying if i dropped anything or the slightest thing that bothered me! I've always had quite a balanced weight but i found celest made me put on weight easily and always was always craving food? Not a normal behaviour for me. I also found my skin became very dry and began acne problems both on my face, back, neck and even my chest (I've never had problems with spots previously!) After swapping pills 3 months ago my moods have completely returned to normal and these problems subsided.
