Experience

As a PCOS sufferer this pill is a game changer. It’s the only pill and I’ve been on a lot which left me feeling just like me, but a good version of me. It limited facial hair growth, helped me regain the hair I’d lost on my head, got rid of my acne and just generally made me feel good. I only stopped using it because drs won’t prescribe it over two years. It’s the only pill I’ve had a truly good experience with.

Experience after taking

I moved from this pill to Brevinor so the only side effects was the gradual removal of the affects that were good. So I lost some hair on my head acne was a thing again and I felt less ‘balanced’ but worth noting Brevinor could have caused this.
