I've been taking cerelle .5 months and I'm feeling in

This answer was rated:

I've been taking cerelle for 4.5 months and I'm feeling in really low mood and don't feel myself. I have been told this will settle after 6 months but at the moment it feels like it's getting worse. Will it improve or what else might be suitable?

I was changed from a combined pill, the low mood started after starting the new pill
OkCerelle contains only progesterone --no estrogen in it.That can result in mood changes.Hence you will likely need estrogen supplementation as well if symptoms do not show any improvement in 2 weeks.Why was the combination pill changed?

Because the GP realised I had migraines a long time ago, I haven't had one for years but she wanted me to change. Will the symptoms improve? I have been taking for 4.5 months
Since you do not have any migraines currently, you should go back to your combination pill.Your symptoms will subside.Since 4.5 months passed, no improvement likely.Please discuss with your GP about it. Best wishes
