Experience

I really struggled with mood swings and general emotions on Levest. Felt like a completely different person, head full of negative thoughts and heightened reactions to the tiniest details. As well as a complete loss of sex drive… But didn’t get pregnant!

Experience after taking

I was worried my mood swings would become worse after the changes but they were completely gone! Feeling like myself again for the first time in months.
