Experience

At first I was fine on it, noticed I got a little bit more sensitive before my period and my cramps were a lot worse but period was lighter and lasted less time. After around 4 months and every month onward I realised my mood deteriorating rapidly before my period, firstly being quite agitated and teary at everything and then becoming borderline suicidal the weekly run up every month. Wouldn’t recommend if struggling with mental health or mood swings.
