It's not been terrible but I'm really not a fan of this pill. I'm on the pill for my endometriosis (to stop my periods) but I can't use the combined pill due to migraines. I've still had periods on this pill - they've been very regular though, with 26 day cycles. My skin has been really bad. It's been very oily with more acne which has been on my back/shoulders/upper arms/chest as well as my face. I've also gained weight quite quickly which has resulted in a lot of stretch marks. I've completely lost my sex drive. I get a lot of pain around ovulation and in the week before my period, as well as my period.

I was on cilest for years and it was only when I came off it that I noticed how much it had been affecting my mood. It made me very irritable and short tempered. It totally killed my sex drive. It did wonders for clearing up my skin but that wasn't worth it for the other side effects.

Cerelle has been much better than I expected. It has not affected my mood and the reduced sex drive is not as significant as with other pills. It's completely stopped my periods and helped improve my pelvic pain from endometriosis. My skin and acne are the same as without the pill - quite oily and acne prone.
