Experience

This pill seemed to slow my metabolism a lot. Was eating a lot less than usual but still putting on weight. Bad headaches on pill breaks for first few months. Good for my skin at first but spots coming back after 6 months. Glad to be off this tbh.

Experience after taking

After being off this pill for over a month I’ve had unexplained nausea and dizziness. Not sure if related. Still no period but maybe (hopefully) pregnant.

Had a similar experience?
