I have been taking cerelle for 3 years but recently I've been having such issues with it and just want to see if anyone else has same issues.
When I first started taking it I was fine, didn't have a period for 8 months (post partum and breastfeeding) no problems.
But now I've started attributing things to the pill
I have no sex drive, weight has piled on and I struggle to lose, I feel anxious and paranoid, get scared about things happening to the people I love like my son, partner, family etc. I'm always tired, complete lack of motivation, headaches, horribly long cycle (currently 50 days) and just don't feel like myself.
I went to docs to change pill and they tried giving me rigevdon which I refused as I've had before and I took myself off it.
I've got an appt next week to see about copper coil which will mean I can stop cerelle hopefully!

I've been on Cerelle for 6 months and I feel just like you. I'd been losing weight and suddenly put weight on and found it impossible to shift. I'm exhausted constantly, as in I wake up feeling tired and I end up napping most afternoons. I don't know if it's Cerelle, but I've not changed anything else so i guess that it must be? If you look online a lot of women report similar complaints.
