Experience

I’ve been taking Levest now for around 2 years and found my mood has improved and I can easily keep track of my periods. My period cramps have also eased off and the flow is not as heavy. A huge downside for me, would be weight gain, as I have put on quite a lot of weight since taking this pill, even though my diet has improved. My sex drive has also plummeted in comparison to how it used to be.
