desogestrel (0,075mg) for contraception / birth control
Had a horrible 2 years on Cerazette. Dr suggested it when my previous pill was discontinued, within a couple of months of starting it husband told me I was being weird, I put it down to other external factors. Put on 2 stone, had no libido whatsoever, and depressive symptoms so bad I was on the verge of seeing the Dr for help, but eventually after a Google of Cerazette found many other reviews from women all saying the same thing.
It's great in two ways:
Stopped periods completely
No chance of getting pregnant because you never want to have sex
But everything else is simply not worth it. The last 2 years have been miserable and it has put my marriage at risk due to the way it made me feel and behave. If it works for you then that's great, but it certainly did nothing for me besides prevent pregnancy. I just have to hope I can now rebuild my marriage and lose the weight!
