Experience

This pill definitely helped to clear up my skin, however I was starting to take it at 16 years old, before I had any sexual experience and I can clearly say I did not experience any sexual desire until I stopped taking this pill some 2.5 years later. I am also quite confident to attribute to this pill some depressive moods and increased appetite by comparing it to how I experienced these things after I stopped using it.

Experience after taking

Like mentioned before, I felt going off this pill had a positive effect on my moods and also on my energy leve/tiredness. I lost the effects of it clearing up my skin, but lost some weight and felt less bloated.

Had a similar experience?
