Experience

I switched to Gedarel 30 after suspecting low libido and low mood could be caused by my previous pill Maexeni. My mood symptoms have improved with Gedarel. It has helped my mild acne clear and I am now confident in my skin. I think with Maexeni it was causing other issues (weight, skin, mood) which was affecting my libido, and as I don’t have those issues with Gedarel, my libido is better. But it still doesn’t feel like my natural self in terms of arousal. I’m still considering getting a coil one day when I’m brave enough, but as far as pills go I do think Gedarel is a good option for me. I’ll also add that my mood swings have pretty much disappeared since my partner and I stopped living together!
