Experience

I have PCOS and this is the only pill that has anti-androgen in my country and it has down sides but I have not had any cysts now since I started using it and therefor the daily pain has gone away! The weight gain is still a bit saddening but I think I can live with extra pounds and no abdominal pain, a fair bargain in my opinion
