Experience

My breasts enlarged noticeably by a cup size quite quickly. But I’ve also put on over a stone within 6 months without any big changes to lifestyle/diet. I’ve experienced a dip in sex drive. The good thing about this pill is that it reduced the menstrual cramps dramatically and I haven’t had any change in mood/emotions.
