    Hi, I take Cerazette, well just been switched to cerelle.
    I take it at the same time every single day and have never missed one (I have been on it 6months) I am never sick (If i am it is usually way after the pill or i take another) I don't and haven't taken any meds that contraindicate with it.
    Would you say that this is an effective method of contraception?
    NHS states: over 99% percent effective if used perfectly
    Im hoping i take it pretty perfectly

    If you are taking it perfectly, the only question that matters is is it reliable enough for you?

    If it is, great. If it isn't, you can look at additional methods, like condoms, or alternatives like the implant.

    Im on this pill too. If you take it right, its pretty much full proof. My bf usually 'pulls out' as well for piece of mind
