Back to back Cerazette

H Ladies,

I was diagnosed with Endo about 2.5 years ago and was perscribed Cerezette/Cerelle to control symptoms.

I have never had surgeries to remove endo tissue.

I am concerned that most things I read say if you take the pill back to back you should have a break but the doctors keep telling me it's fine without.

Please could anyone advise if they are being told the same and if this is safe?

Thank you

My doctor is adamant that the break is pointless & I believe him. Its about suppressing periods to limit endo growth.

I did that for 4 months but I still felt rubbish & had a lap to remove the endo.

Cezarette made me feel terrible, I put on weight, was incredibly moody & just felt terrible! But some women really like it, I think back to back is completely fine. Good luck & feel better soon!


Thank you :-)


I took my pill back to back for a ridiculous length of time too, and i was really concerned! My GP said that i didnt need to take a break, but if it made me feel better i could just take a week off and then re-start it just to get a period, but i figured it wouldn't hurt just taking it all the time!

If you do take a break then don't forget you'll have to start with extra contraception for the first week i think it is!
