Unpleasant side effects like unbearable breast pain and ongoing bleeding which was by far the major issue in my case. Of the 10 or so months that I took Cerazette, I was bleeding for about 5-6 months nearly every week. Also, I had a clear skin before going on Cerazette which is now totally messed up & I am trying to sort it out with my GP's help. I guess you won't have any other choice of hormonal contraception if you are obese or very overweight. But if you aim to reduce your weight, you can go on a different contraception (if your doctor approves of course), which I would definitely recommend. The only positive side of it for me was that it got rid of my severe body ache and period pain for several months.
