Almost continuous periods and mood swings on cerazette

I've only just connected my foul and inexplicable moods that last all day with the cerazette and bleeding. Awful moods, inability to be around my small children (although I have to be!), rages, exhaustion. I had a day like this yesterday, then full period started in the evening. I've been getting lots of lighter bleeds, roughly a day or so every week.

I'm breastfeeding 13 mo DS, and started cerazette after he was born. I'd previously been on it after DD was born with no problems at all.

I don't know what to try. The bleeding is very annoying, but the moods are the worst part. I never used to have PMT or anything.

I had trouble with it, I was having month long periods, have a week break and then it would pretty much start again, the doctor told me that it just disagrees with some people, try a different one, I'm on microgynon (can't have it if you are still breastfeeding though) and it is working wonders

Thanks. I'm still breastfeeding so can't have microgynon. Also, I think I was taken off it for something to do with migraines at some point. Hopefully there's a different one I can try. Just weird that it's been fine before. GP Thursday.

I know it's odd, I know mine is different cause I'm on different contraceptive but I've just had the mad panic with my week break as my p hadn't started cause it always used to start on the 2nd day but now it's changed to the fifth day, it's weird why it changes
