I was recommended Cerelle to control period cramps and because I am prone to migraines. The first few months of using this pill were great and I had no negative side effects, as well as improved periods with minimal cramping. Eventually, I had what felt like a 2-month long period with constant spotting/bleeding which varied from light to very heavy on a day-to-day basis. I went to the doctor and they changed me to Noriday, and my periods became more regular again.

Changed to Noriday after constant bleeding on Cerelle. My initial reason for going on the pill was to control period cramps and my doctor recommended the mini pill as I am prone to migraines. First time on Noriday I experienced no symptoms/changes, except for reduced cramps. I then stopped taking it for about a year due to not having a good routine and had no problems at all. I went back on Noriday a few months ago after my periods become incredibly irregular/sparse, and this time the pill completely stopped my periods. I am unsure if the cause of my periods becoming so sporadic was a delayed reaction to Noriday from before, or something else, but my doctor assured me that it is normal for periods to stop while on this pill due to its strength. I am now in a similar position to before where I don't have a good enough daily routine to ensure I take the pill within the 3-hour window and am now considering an alternative method.
