What users say

I taken the Zelleta minipill for nearly 2 years now and haven't had a period since. Its great now but it worried me alot to start with I constantly thought the pill had failed and I was pregnant.


After 4.5 years I have no complaints really - during year 1 I was spotting alot, bleeding was very unpredictable but that began to stop over time - in fact I don't have periods anymore. But its important to know that I think its only approx 2 out of 10 get no bleeding at all.
