Experience

I take this pill continually until I start spotting and take a break for 5 days. I have tried many pills and this is the first one that has got my heavy, painful periods under control without too many side effects. They are now short and sweet and I don’t suffer greatly. However, the itchy spots are a pain so I take antihistamines and I often get a headache of the first day of my break.
