Cerelle and constant periods!

I've been on Cerelle for a few months now and my periods seem to be getting more frequent!
I'm now in my 3rd period since the start of December! It's a total pita, not least because I never know when to expect it so am sometimes unprepared.

Has anybody else had this?

Is cereals similar to cerazette?
Thy say wait 3 months to settle but I struggle to wear pads etc continuously and find small amounts of bleeding affects my ability to go swimming and it is so annoying!
Can you ask your GP? Have you been able to try other pills?

I think it is the same yes. I've been on it since September and the periods are getting more frequent.
I'm seeing my GP next week. I've tried other pills previously, before having my children, and most gave me horrendous PMS.

Cerelle is awful. It gave me such excruciating pains I was curled up in a ball on the floor unable to move or talk. Doctors seem to be moving more and more people onto it, I think it's cheaper. Go back and change if you can.

I'm currently pregnant but am dreading what to do after DC arrives since I don't seem to have any luck with hormonal contraceptives. Diabetes was the only one that ever suited me and that's. It used as a contraceptive only anymore.

Meant to say I agree that GPs will prescribe the cheaper option, if you explain your problems then they may be able to change it back.

Thanks everyone.
I'm not sure what one to try next as none of the ones I've been on in the past have really suited me either!

Please do let us know itritatedmama what your gp suggested. Will be interesting what they can offer instead. I think I may be in a similar position to you in terms of no pills that suit!

Yes it was constant breakthrough bleeding for me and periods that lasted 2 weeks, but it was the extreme PMS/low moods which finally did for it. I got moved onto Noriday and haven't had a period yet and feel so much more cheerful - although I've heard others have bad experiences on that too. My GP says it's very much just trial and error.

GP has put me on a different pill. He is sending me for blood tests as he seems to think all the bleeding could be a thyroid issue.
