What our users say

After taking the combined pill for so long, I find the packets of Cerelle a bit annoying to follow. Saying that having no periods is amazing!!


About Cerelle

How to take Cerelle

Take one pill every day within the same 12 hour window. Don’t take a break between packs. There are 28 pills per pack.

You are protected from pregnancy straight away if you start taking the progestogen only pill on the first day of your period. When you stop using the pill your fertility will return to normal.

When to try Cerelle

Cerelle is suitable for people who can’t take oestrogen or the combined pill. You need to take Cerelle within the same 12 hour period each day. 

If you are using a 3 hour pill and you often forget to take it on time, you might find it easier to take Cerelle.  It’s ok to try different oral contraception for a few months each. Keep a record of how you feel and how each pill affects your body and mind.

How Cerelle affects your period

Cerelle can make your periods irregular. You may bleed less often or periods may stop completely. Your periods could become lighter or heavier. Some women find Cerelle helps with premenstrual symptoms or painful periods.

Do Cerelle and Cerazette cause bleeding?

Cerelle and Cerazette are both types of the progestogen only pill (also known as the ‘mini pill’).

Irregular bleeding is common on the progestogen only pill, which can make periods more irregular, lighter, heavier, more frequent, or in some people, stop altogether.

Is daily light bleeding on Cerelle normal?

Yes, it takes a few months for your body to adapt to the changes from the hormones, and irregular bleeding is common on the progestogen only pill, The best time to assess is after you have been on the pill for 3-6 months when your body has got used to your new pill and hopefully settled.
