Hi, I came off the mini pill (cerazette) last tuesday because I had suspicions I might be pregnant, bloating, dizzyness, generally feeling 'not quite right'. However since stopping it I feel worse, feeling dizzy a lot, quite bad cramping (like period pain), and my period has not returned as yet (its now a week since). I had these symptoms when I was pregnant with my 2nd child but despite doing 3 pregnancy tests, they have all been negative. Can anyone advise?

Maybe
Well it could be your bodys hormones from coming off the pill. Your used to being regulated by this pill and now your suddenly off of it. You wont be regualar for a while because the pill regualted you. So I would wait another week and Then take another test. Then goto a Dr.

Coming off Cerazette to get Pregnant
I have been off Cerazette 37 days, no period and none for the 10 years I was on it. Negative pregnancy test but all the systems of being pregnant, Not that I have been before only from reading about it. As I am 42 I dont know what to think. Sorry for my ignorance but could I still get pregnant without having a period ? I really cant face taking a pregnancy test every month just to check it is too traumatic. Any advice welcome

only plus point to this pill was that i was not angry at all and whilst trying nearly every conbined pill out there i have a history of getting aggressive at time off month!

Hi chrissie20071
I was on Cerazette for 5 years which was great as it stopped the regular monthly mood swings as I never had a period during this time. I came off the pill 2 weeks ago (trying for a baby) and have been fine. I had period type pains for the first week but other than that and not actually having a period yet, I have had no other symptoms and am OK just as you are. I would deffinately use Cerazette again in the future.

Pleasee can someone help me, I've been on cerazette for around 18 months and stopped takin it around 2 months ago and haven't had a period since :s I last had sex on the 21st july this year and haven't had sex since, the last time I ad sex I had forgotten to take my pill the day before so we used a condom, however the condom came off and we noticed straight away and we did not carry on, to be on the safe side I went for the morning after pill 48 hours after, I then did a pregnancy test at the clinic 3 weeks later and it was negative. In the last few days I have had very soar breasts/ nipples had a nosebleed and I have seemed to be puttin weight on. Could I be pregnant?

for the last week or so, i've had: nausea, headaches, bloated, cramps, emotional and just generally not feeling right.

Has anyone else experienced this ??

Hi All,

I have been on Cerazette for about 2 years now and I seem to bleed almost every month for about 5 days, sometimes twice a month, despite taking the pill at the same exact time everyday...

I'm not trying for a baby yet with my partner but would like to hope I will be soon, I have read some really sad stories about being pregnant or attempting to get pregnant after taking it and I am quite worried.

Does this happen to anyone else?

pregnancy symptoms
I came off Cerazette 41 days ago after having been on it for 2 years. I wanted a break as I was bleeding almost constantly and always started bleeding suring sex. I visited my doctor who carried out all sorts of tests and suggested I had a break from the pill and go back to see her once I had had 2 periods. Since then, 41 days ago, I have had no bleeding, I am bloated, have put on around 7 pounds, have sore breasts, no sex drive and feel tearful a lot of the time. I'm worried I might be pregnant but have been careful to use condoms and therefore it seems unlikely, and this forum has made me think it could just be the side effects of coming off the pill. Fingers crossed, I'm gonna take a test tomorrow just to be sure! Glad I'm not alone though!

Not alone :-)
I am so glad that i have stumbled across this site. I came off Cerazette 8 weeks ago and have not had a period since, i have done 4 pregnancy tests which were negative, however, i am feeling very pregnant, swollen tender breasts, lower abdomen cramps, irritable, weight gain, constipated, headaches, nausea...the list is endless. I am visiting the GP tomorrow and hopefully he can finally put my mind at rest and then i suppose its just a waiting game for my period to make an appearance. I never had any problems while taking this pill, i was very regular and took it on time, however i stopped taking this due to acne, which i have never suffered with and thought it would be due to taking the pill...however since stopping it has got worse!!

Coming off Cerazette
Hello I came off this pill 7 days ago. I had no problems on it except for a few headaches and 6lbs weight gain. I never had a period whilst on it and was wondering how long it took people for their cycles to regulate again. My stomach is very bloated and I've got bad spots around my jaw line! I'm beginning to wish I never started this pill in the first place.

Coming off mini pill
Hi, I came off the mini pill 3 weeks ago to try for a baby with my husband I thought I'd have a period straight away but I've not. Is there any women out there who have conceived without having a period? Do I have to wait for my periods to back to normal before I fall pregnant? x
