Experience

I’ve been on Levest for 8/9 months now and I haven’t experienced many negative symptoms. I did note that my with my periods i experience spotting, and that’s because I take the pills back to back so I don’t bleed for a month and that isn’t a problem. It’s done wonders for me in my opinion, my periods are lighter however the cramps are a bit worse than before, and I rarely get acne. I did mention that I have gained weight but that’s simply due to cravings, bad habits/choices and not exercising, I don’t think it was a direct cause from the pill.
