I've tried Cerazette but didn't get on with it. It made me spot continuously. could a different mini pill work for me? Thanks!

i was switched to cerelle (without consent as i ordered a repeat prescription on the phone) and its been terrible for me. my back is a mess from acne and face isn't much better, also in the 3months i've used it i've had about 9 days all together without bleeding. its cheap so alot of dr's seem to be swapping people on to it.
hoping to change to a different one

There are lower dose POP: micronor,(norithisterone) norgeston (levenorgestrel) and noriday (norithisterone) (femulen is discontinued which is a shame, I got on with that and it is a nicer progestogen).

These don't seem to give the bleeding problems that the newer higher dose desorgestrel ones do (cerazette, cerelle etc) but you have to take it at the same time every day. They only have a 3 hour window.
