    I see a lot of information about Cerelle and other POP methods reducing libido.

    Here's my experience:
    I'm onto my 5th packet of Cerelle.
    Previously used to take Rigvidon - changed due to migraines with aura- wasn't allowed to continue using estrogen based contraceptives (unfortunately because they work a treat!)

    My skin seems to have its ups and down. I've never had clear skin, but I think I do get a lot more spots now on Cerelle, however so far thankfully no acne. But then when it gets clear, it gets very clear, where as i'd constantly just have one or two spots with my previous contraception.

    No weight gain. Slight bloating, but actually less so than prev. contraception. Actually think I've lost a bit of weight and become less hungry.

    I actually think this has increased, quite a bit. I feel like I have more energy.

    Definitely improved. Never been one for mood swings but if something annoyed me on combined contraception I'd get really angry. This has only happened once since changing to this pill.

    Much much worse. Bled for ages the first couple of months, settled down now, hoping they will of stopped (and not due to pregnancy)

    Other issues:
    I have literally had no other issues. The thing that bothers me the most is bleeding but I'm hoping this will of now sorted itself out.
