I have been on so many contraceptive pills and am usually unfussy but cilique’s side effects were crazy - weight gain (5kg in 3 months), really noticeable facial hair growth and the WORST chin/hormonal acne. A real nightmare

switched from levest because of my skin, i think it’s cleared up my skin a bit (i have a better skincare routine now tho so could be that too), but ive been spotting quite a bit in the last few months. periods have gotten less painful which is good! boobs also got bigger ;) sex drive went down a bit, moods have always been all over the place tbh LOL

I was on Cilest before Cilique and can't remember when the brands changed but my experience with both pills was the same. I've now been on Cilest/Cilique for about 7 years with a few month break last year. Cilest and now Cilique is the only pill that's worked for me - with other pills I had awful breakthrough bleeding. My periods are super regular and start on the same day and basically at the same time every month. I don't run my packs together as previously when I've done that I've had breakthrough bleeding - this is why I didn't give 5 stars. I still get period like symptoms like cramping and lower back pain, sometimes headaches but they never bother me too much. My skin improved a lot when I started the pill but as I've had acne on my chin in the past, I still get hormonal spots in that area but I think this would be worse if I wasn't on it. All in all I've been very happy and grateful I found a pill that worked for me!
