Experience

I started on Gedarel after having my implant removed, as with most contraception it’s hard to determine whether mood changes are due to the new hormones, but the timeline of when I started Gedarel and the shift in my mood (anxious, depressed, no sex drive) was pretty consistent. Do not recommend.
