It's been in my drawer for months and I've not got he bottle to try it after the Mirena made me bleed for months on end. I can't take oestrogen.

So I've got cerazette (pharmacist friend insisted there is a negligible difference between this and unbranded versions so I ensured I asked for cerazette).

Everything I read is bad!!

Can't give you a positive story umfortunately. Had it for a year and it made me spot/bleed most of that year. At the end went to family planning clinic and got copper coil asap.

I was on it from the age of 14 to 37 when I stopped to get pregnant and no issues and no periods.

After a year of periods going haywire I'm back on it. Only done 2 months and have had break through bleeding so not sure it's going to work again but will give it 6 months.

Yes me! It was wonderful. I took it for 3 years before my second baby. I didn't bleed once the whole time and had no idea even when I was due on. After my lb they put me on cerelle which is the unbranded one... omg! There is a big difference. Migraines, ridiculously heavy periods etc. I've just managed to convince my doctor to put me back on cerazette so I'm hoping it does the same again.

I was in cerazette for a while and it was no problem. The only thing I didn't like was that my periods were very irregular so I didn't know when one would arrive. They weren't frequent or heavy though.

Wonderful, the first 6 months very irregular periods but after than nothing.

I love Cerazette.
It keeps me Endometriosis symptom free and only time I've had a flare up in past 5 years is when doctors changed me to a generic brand that was allegedly the same. Now I buy it through Lloyds.

I had some bleeding for the first couple of months but then after that nothing.

I was on cerazette. Still had a period every month and actually fell pregnant about 7 months after starting.

Was gutted as was the only pill I could take

I was on it with no issues from 16 - 20 until I got a bit of the aul spotting/cervical erosion and was swapped to Yasmin. However my DTwin was on it for a short time and got headaches and mad mood swings- really depends on the individual.

I did hear it's like 90p a script as opposed to £7 or something for Yasmin which is why they start so many people on it initially, but that might be a pile of shit.

Yasmin is a combined pill thecraic so you can't compare them

I'm day 4 of my cycle. Too late to start cerazette? Should I wait until next cycle? Every info page is conflicting.

I've been on cerazette for years with no issues and no periods. I came off it to conceive DS2 and am now back in it. I was moved onto cerelle once as it is cheaper- it caused bad cramping and irregular bleeding.
I've always been able to take it straight away. As far as I'm aware you don't need to wait for a particular point in your cycle.

Been on cerazette for years, only stopped for conceiving.

No periods! I bloody love it.

Did have spotting etc for a few months when restarting each time, settles down after a few months.
Also get this when changing to other brands si only get cerazette now
