For me personally this contraceptive method didn’t suit me. The side effects became too much that I didn’t want to take the pill anymore.

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.

Ive been on this pill for just a week so far and its the best mini pill ive tried. I have no side effects apart from some mild dizziness and some drowsiness which is considered normal. If anything i feel more relaxed and happier on it. Ive tried multiple combined & mini pills and had bad side effects from them so cerazette is definitely a big improvement for me.
