THE pill

AdvantagesNo side-effects and it works!

DisadvantagesYou have to remember to take it...

My Pill

Advantagesunprotected safe sex, lighter periods.

DisadvantagesWeight gain, doesn't protect from STD's

"...effective against unwanted pregnancy. You take Cilest for 21 days and then break for 7 days. During these 7 days bleeding occurs and unprotected sexual intercourse may still take place and you are still protected against pregnancy. If you forget to take the pill as long as you have taken the pill correctly in the last 7 days and have seven or more pills left to take then you will be covered. If you have not got 7 pills left to take then you ..." Read review
