Just wondering why I've been prescribed this after having my baby. I used to be on cerazette but since reading up on cerelle it contains the same as cerazette so I don't see why I've been changed onto something different.

It's to do with the way drug companies charge for drugs. There are some newer brands of pills out now that are identical to, but cheaper than, the older brands. As the NHS goes through such large amounts of these drugs it can make a big difference to budgets.
